“The Merchant of Venice”: Session 1

March 11, 18

The Merchant of Venice

The Merchant of Venice

A pound of flesh, disguises, anti-Semitism, vengeance and mercy, a test of loyalty, a game of chance to win love—all of these are elements of Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. On the first night we will watch the DVD production of the play and on the second night we will deal with an analysis of literary and Christian themes in this play. The play is rich in themes such as the balance of justice and mercy, anti-Semitism in Shakespeare’s time, and the observation that comedy sometimes can be deadly serious.
