Product Description

This is one of Shakespeare's darkest comedies. It is built around the romantic story of a young man, Bassanio, who has squandered his fortune and must borrow money to court the wealthy lady he loves. This tale is set against the most disturbing story of the Jewish moneylender Shylock and his demand for the "pound of flesh" owed him by the Venetian merchant, Antonio, who has fallen into Shylock's debt. Here pathos and farce combine with moral complexity and romantic entanglement to display the extraordinary power and range of Shakespeare at his best.
