One of William Shakespeare's greatest plays, The Merchant of Venice is also his most controversial. A tale of the triumph of true love, it is packed with witty dialogue, philosophizing and lyrical flourishes. But the comedy is often overshadowed by concerns about anti-Semitism swirling around the character of the Jewish moneylender, Shylock. Listen as this production, by the Shakespeare Recording Society, brings the play to life, warts and all, and demonstrates that an exploration of religious intolerance makes this work even more vital and compelling than ever. This full-cast recording features Hugh Griffith as Shylock, Dorothy Tutin as Portia, Harry Andrews as Antonio, and many others. Download and start listening now!

    " Reading this book made me fully appreciate Shakespeare's works. And at the end of it all, I could not help but pity Shylock. "

    " So I'm reading this for school and I actually like it so far. I've just finished Act IV scene 1 and I'm preforming Shylock's soliolquy in Act III on Thursday. Overall, I've liked it and can't wait to read more Shakespeare this summer! "

    " It has been read and over-read for school till it has lost all its dramatic value for me. But the true fact of the matter is that Shylock is an everlasting character who will never erase himself from common memory. "
