    It is actually intriguing how Shakespeare plays with the gender of one of his major characters, in this case, Ariel, and how he manipulates the character so much so that the masculinity or femininity of Ariel both fit the character description. Honestly I had originally thought that Ariel was a “she”, however, I find that Ariel being masculine in some of the portrayals actually makes sense, and surprisingly, Ariel fits the masculine scene just as well as he/she fits into the feminine scene. This proved to be a… well, eye-opener for me 😉

    Nice work Mr. Co 😀
