    Wouldn't you know it - I get to the end of the thread and Walloon makes the point I wanted to make - The "Hath not a Jew eyes" speech is fine. Although the speech is just Shylock trying to justify his revenge, not a plea toward human sympathy or whatever.   Not for sixty years has a book been so brutally (and, in the end, unsuccessfully) suppressed as An Eye for an Eye. One major newspaper, one major magazine, and three major publishers paid $40, for it but were scared off. One printed 6, books, then pulped them. Two dozen publishers read An Eye for an Eye and praised s:

Current criticism notwithstanding, The Merchant of Venice seems to me a profoundly and crudely anti-Semitic play. The debate about its implications has usually been between inexpert Jewish readers and spectators who discern an anti-Semitic core and literary critics (many of them Jews) who defensively maintain that the Shakespearean subtlety of mind transcends anti-Semitism.

    Paris Jewish parents and teachers try to determine whether it's safe for pupils to leave the school on the day four Jews are killed in Toulouse by one of Abe Foxman's "anti-government, anti-immigration, neo-Nazi nationalists" - or, as his friends call him, Mohammed. Pushed to the edge, Shylock passionately insists that Jews are no different than any other people, with common humanity, feelings – and desire for revenge.

Likewise, for Shylock to request a pound of flesh as his bond from Antonio is a horror all in itself.

Shylock does not attempt to make any reasonable request, such as receiving Antonio’s money and riches or a demand that results in the degradation of Antonio; rather, he desires the ultimate prize of taking Antonio’s life. Shylock’s joy is evident as he is informed of news regarding Antonio’s lost ships and he embarks upon his famous speech, ‘Hath not a Jew eyes.

Probably the one that has sparked the most controversy is The Merchant of Venice, which many intellectuals have dubbed an anti-Semitic play.

The character that this discussion centers around is Shylock, the rich. Some say Shakespeare, with this speech, far from intending to make the Jews seem human, meant only to depict Shylock as running true to the species. That is to say that Shylock does what Jews do: poses as human to survive.

The Nazis, in fact, took full advantage of Shylock as an oft-employed device in their anti-Jewish propaganda. “Hath not a Jews eyes” (III.i) Shylock, the main character, is depicted as a weasel who grotesquely demands a "pound of flesh" in the “name of frien Shylock Speech & Analysis - College Essays - Afrikanscholar.

It is the moneylender and Jew, hence the controversy, Shylock, portrayed as a de Written in the late s, a time when the Jews were absent from England (were expelled inand would only be accepted again in ), captures the shocking caricatures made by the British/5(K). Both The Merchant of Venice and The Jew of Malta are set in Italy, as noted in their respective titles.

It’s late in the 16 th century and Jews are looked upon as money hoarders who will end up in hell because they do not believe that Christ is the Messiah.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr im Fachbereich Germanistik - Komparatistik, Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft, Note: 1,3, Leopold-Franzens-Universität Innsbruck, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The presented study compares two different german translations of William Shakespeares “The Merchant of Venice” with the strongly ambivalent figure of “Shylock, the Jew” in Author: Kristin Hellinger.
