Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Maori thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare was edited for three audiences. The first includes Maori-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Maori speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Maori in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Maori Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Maori or English.

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.
