9780312216894: The Merchant of Venice: William Shakespeare (New Casebooks)

This collection of essays is aimed at readers who are looking for new ways of thinking about Shakespeare's most controversial play and new ways of thinking about their own practice as critics. The collection offers a spectrum of the more recent writings on the play that opens up its historical, cultural, and political significance and also serves to demonstrate some of the ways in which contemporary criticism is both based upon critical theory and is also about the practice of criticism.

Book Description:

The Merchant of Venice has been performed more often than any other comedy by Shakespeare. This edition pays special attention to the expectations of its first audience, and to our modern experience of seeing and hearing the play.

From the Publisher:

This is one of Shakespeare's darkest comedies, for the romantic story of a young man, Bassanio, who has squandered his fortune and must borrow money to woo the wealthy lady he loves is set against the most disturbing story of the Jewish moneylender Shylock and his demand for the "pound of flesh" owed him by the Venetian merchant, Antonio, who has fallen into Shylock's debt. Here pathos and farce combine with moral complexity and romantic entanglement to display the extraordinary power and range of Shakespeare at his best.
