William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice (The New Cambridge Shakespeare, Updated Edition)

William Shakespeare, "The Merchant of Venice" (The New Cambridge Shakespeare, Updated Edition)
Edited by M. M. Mahood
Cambridge University Press | 2003 | ISBN: 0521532515 | 216 pages | siPDF | 5.7 MB

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

In a substantial new addition to the Introduction, Charles Edelman focuses on the play's sexual politics and recent scholarship devoted to the position of Jews in Shakespeare's time. He surveys the international scope and diversity of theatrical interpretations of The Merchant in the 1980s and 1990s and their different ways of tackling the troubling figure of Shylock.
