The Merchant of Venice, with its celebrated and moving passages, remains one of Shakespeare’s most beautiful plays.
Depending on whom you ask, it also remains one of his most repulsive.
Was Shakespeare being anti-Semitic, or was he merely exploring anti-Semitism?
Things are not always what they seem.
Characters include: -
Shylock - A Jewish moneylender in Venice
Portia - A wealthy heiress from Belmont.
Antonio - The merchant whose love for his friend Bassanio prompts him to sign Shylock’s contract and almost lose his life.
Bassanio - A gentleman of Venice, and a kinsman and dear friend to Antonio.
Gratiano - A friend of Bassanio’s who accompanies him to Belmont
Jessica - Although she is Shylock’s daughter, Jessica hates life in her father’s house, and elopes with the young Christian gentleman, Lorenzo.
