A noble but impoverished Venetian asks a friend, Antonio, for a loan to impress an heiress. His friend agrees, but is forced to borrow the sum from a cynical Jewish moneylender, Shylock, and signs a chilling contract to honour the debt with a pound of his own flesh. A complex and controversial comedy, The Merchant of Venice explores prejudice and the true nature of justice.

William Shakespeare: The Merchant of Venice

Nem is tudom. Gyenge közepesnek mondanám, elég sok sebből vérzik, főleg a befejezésével nem vagyok kibékülve. Annyira a sztori sem fogott meg, és a szereplők sem.

SHYLOCK: (…) I am a Jew: hath not a Jew eyes? hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions, fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is: if you prick us do we not bleed? if you tickle us do we not laugh? if you poison us do we not die? and if you wrong us shall we not revenge?

A stage, where every man must play a part,
And mine a sad one.

PORTIA: (…)
One half of me is yours, the other half yours,
Mine own I would say: but if mine then yours,
And so all yours; O these naughty times
Puts bars between the owners and their rights.
And so though yours, not yours (prove it so)
Let Fortune go to hell for it, not I.

LORENZO: (…) go in sirrah, bid them prepare for dinner.
LAUNCELOT: That is done sir, they have all stomachs.
LORENZO: Goodly Lord, what a wit-snapper are you, then bid them prepare dinner.
LAUNCELOT: That is done too sir, only cover is the word.
LORENZO: Will you cover then sir?
LAUNCELOT: Not so sir neither, I know my duty.
LORENZO: Yet more quarrelling with occasion, wilt thou show the whole wealth of thy wit in an instant; I pray thee understand a plain man in his plain meaning: go to thy fellows, bid them cover the table, serve in the meat, and we will come into dinner.
LAUNCELOT: For the table sir, it shall be serv'd in, for the meat sir, it shall be covered, for your coming in to dinner sir, why let it be as humours and conceits shall govern.
Exit Clown.
