PROSERO - (prose about Prospero)

You taught me language; and my profit on't
Is, I know how to curse. The red plague rid you
For learning me your language!
frown

Caliban is denouncing Prospero for teaching ("learning") him his language, declaring that the only good Prospero's language has done him is enabling him to curse; Caliban gives an immediate example of his cursing ability by calling upon the red plague to destroy Prospero for teaching him his language.
