The Merchant of Venuce Review

Read the original text and I loved it better than the modern one. Turns out The Merchant of Venice was supposed to be comical (prejudice against Shylock was supposed to be funny), but we find it painful and thus we see the play as a tragicomedy. Bittersweet! But if I were to present this as a play (again), I’d rather focus on Shylock’s tragedies. Good story, though, and a smart one too!

3/5
