“Which is the merchant…which is the Jew?” Lyrical, gripping, complex and … anti-Semitic. Come to class having read Merchant and prepared for a deep dive into Shakespeare’s most controversial play. Look at sources, performance history and critiques from Harold Bloom to Isaac Asimov. Most of all examine the text to understand and enjoy a “problem play” by the greatest literary genius of all times.
