    Warm, funny, adult morality tale

    This is a wonderful play - and unless you have seen it or read it you don't know it at all. That's because everything the popular culture tells us about this play is false (for example; how many of you think this play is about a merchant named Shylock? ;-)<P> The Merchant of Venice is about a merchant named Antonio and his efforts to help his daughter Portia, find a suitable husband. A significant subplot involves a cruel, greedy Jew named Shylock. Some call this play anti-Semitic because of Shylock¿s character, it isn¿t. Making a bad guy Jewish is not anti-Semitic. The other Jew in the play is Shylock¿s daughter Jessica, and she is sweet, kind, and compassionate.<P> There is powerful verbal conflict between the Christian and Jewish world-views in which both sides get a fair hearing and get in their licks. This is almost unheard of today because the Christian side of this dialectic is considered politically incorrect.<P> The Merchant of Venice is a lively and happy morality tale. Good triumphs over bad - charity over greed - love over hate. There is fine comedy. Portia is one of Shakespeare's great women. There are moments of empathy and pain with all the major characters. There is great humanity and earthiness in this play. These things are what elevate Shakespeare over any other playwright in English history. <P> Plays should be seen - not read. I recommend you see this play (if you can find a theater with the courage and skill to do it). But if it is not playing in your area this season - buy the book and read

    it's a change

    I go to college and for english we had to read the mercant of Venice. It toke me awhile to understand the book but I just kept reading it over and over and I finally understood it. I enjoyed the book as it is different then any other book, it has a script to it so the whole class got to join in, so it ended up being an enjoyable book to read to the class. If you would like a change instead of reading a book that is like every other chose the merchant of venice as it is totally different. I hope you enjoy reading the merchant of venice if you pick to read it.

    Unbelievable

    This book is one of the best plays I have read! The book features many different characters, which have many attributes that pertain to the main part of the story. The trial scene is an amazing one, with Shylock, the plantiff having the tables turned back onto himself. This is a remarkable book. Anyone who has read Shakespears books will certainly enjoy this one !!

    Unreadable formatting.

    This book is impossible to read on my Nook. There are breaks between words with number and symbols.

    Dry one line humor

    This book was wonderful once you get into it. The characters come alive, and you feel as though, the character are people in your life. There where a lot unanswered questions but at the end the fill out the emptyness.
