The Merchant of Venice

===About the Book=== Though categorized as a comedy, The Merchant of Venice is a moving exploration of the themes of justice, mercy and revenge. Antonio, the merchant of Venice, and Shylock the money-lender have struck a bargain whereby Shylock will lend Antonio some money providing that if Antonio cannot repay him, Shylock can claim a pound of Antonio's flesh. Antonio's ships are lost and Shylock seeks to enforce the contract. As Jew conflicts with Christian, the ancient argument for justice tempered by mercy is pleaded by Portia.
