The Merchant of Venice
The Merchant of Venice
Back Cover

The Merchant of Venice can be a difficult play for modern audiences, particularly for its depiction of the troubling treatment of Shylock by the play’s other characters. However, it also offers great drama in its use of a courtoom scene and delivers a strong argument for mercy and forgiveness.
This re-telling of William Shakespeare’s classic is ideal for students who wish to extend and consolidate their knowledge of English.
