    It''''''''''''''''s a twist on "don''''''''''''''''t hate the player; hate the game." Don''''''''''''''''t hate the actor that plays Shylock, hate (or, hey, maybe love) the way that actor is told to play Shylock.

    Shylock is a Jewish moneylender, father to Jessica, enemy to Antonio, and one of the most complex characters of The Merchant of Venice— and arguably of all of Shakespeare''''''''''''''''s works.

    I feel that another significant symbol in this play is Portia''s ring. Although it is not mentioned in the symbols as given above, it is definitely an important symbol. A ring was given to Bassanio by Portia in Act III, Scene II, when Bassanio passes the casket test and is authorized to marry her. Portia gives Bassanio a ring stating that this ring signified their love and that she is handing over herself and her worldly possessions to Bassanio when she gave him that ring. However she lays the condition that the day that he loses, sells or gi. Read more

    Antonio is brought before the Duke and the magnificoes of Venice to stand trial for failing to pay off his obligation to Shylock. The Duke is upset about the penalty, a pound of Antonio s flesh, but cannot find any lawful way of freeing Antonio from his bond. Shylock enters the court and the Duke tells him that all of the men gathered there expect him to pardon Antonio and forgive the debt.

    Shylock replies that he has already sworn by his Sabbath that he will take his pound of flesh from Antonio. He is unable to provide a good reason for wanting to punish Antonio in this manner, other than to say, So can I give no reason, nor I will not, / More than a lodged hate and a certain loathing / I bear Antonio (4.1.58-60).
