Shakespeare's 'The Tempest' & Lost

I finished reading this famous work last week to my five year old. It was an adaptation so I don't know how good a job was done compared to the original. But I couldn't help think that some of the writers of Lost had this in mind as they wrote. Read this synopsis and think about the show. Invisible characters (the voices), supra-human characters, a monster and then this quote from one of the characters, Gonzalo, lost on the island in The Tempest...
"Now rejoice!" cried Gonzalo, weeping for gladness to see how men had repented of evil and set their lives straight again. "Here on this isle we deemed ourselves lost, yet here, where we thought ourselves lost, have we truly found ourselves!"
