In this lively comedy of love and money in sixteenth-century Venice, Bassanio wants to impress the wealthy heiress Portia but lacks the necessary funds. He turns to his merchant friend, Antonio, who is forced to borrow from Shylock, a Jewish moneylender. When Antonio’s business falters, repayment becomes impossible–and by the terms of the loan agreement, Shylock is able to demand a pound of Antonio’s flesh. Portia cleverly intervenes, and all ends well
To be honest here this play wasn’t that bad as some of the other plays written by William Shakespeare.
The plot was okay for the most part but the way it was presented to us made me not like this play. The way it was presented to us made it super exhausting to read it.
To be fully honest here this play is full of body horror and racism. The racism is a big part of the majority of William Shakespeare plays.
The characters here are okay for the most part of course there are couple of annoying characters in this play here and there. But the main characters in this play are okay for the most part which made me give this play some extra points.
I Give Play 2 / 5
