The Tempest

Assistance for analysing this quote:

Silence! one word more
Shall make me chide thee, if not hate thee. What!
An advocate for an imposter! hush!
Thou think'st there is no more such shapes as he,
Having seen but him and Caliban: foolish wench!
To the most of men this is a Caliban
And they to him are angels.”

Miranda begs her father leniency on Ferdinand. She implores Prospero not to hurt him. Prospero is angered by his daughter's naiveté. He tells her that she cannot hope to know a man is worthy when she has only seen two other males, Ferdinand and Caliban, on the island.
