The Merchant of Venice revolves around its title merchant, Antonio, but is perhaps most memorable for the Jewish moneylender Shylock and his passionate cries for the famous “pound of flesh” that he insists on collecting for Antonio’s debt. Though classified as a comedy, and inevitably love and happiness do prevail, The Merchant of Venice is a complicated play whose intensely dramatic scenes often overshadow the comic ones; it is no wonder why it remains one of Shakespeare’s most famous, and controversial, plays.

About the Author

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
