In her opening speech “If by your art, my dearest father, you have / Put the wild waters in this roar, allay them…”, Miranda is depicted as a sympathetic person who cries for others’ miseries. She suffered to have seen other people suffer in the tempest created by her father. At the same time Miranda is respectful enough to her father to have humbly requested him to put an end to the terrible storm.

Miranda is actually a very soft-hearted person. She cannot bear the undoings and vanities of other people. By the words ‘dear father’ we understand that she is also a polite and devoted human being.

Miranda is very kind-hearted woman. She has sympathy for the noble men who were on the ship.
