Was Shakespeare himself anti - Semitic?


was Shakespeare himself anti - Semitic?

I said it is not in the slightest bit anti-Semitic in spirit, but rather takes anti-Semitism as its subject, exposing its vileness at every turn, I would be making the play less challenging than. In fact, there is no shortage of episodes that tell that this play does not neatly fit into the category of anti-Semitic literature. At that very moment, one of her companions praises her deed, declaring, "Now, by my hood, a Gentile and no Jew.". Which is not to say that The Merchant of Venice is not an uncomfortable play. The note says that with regard to atheistic views: Marloe doth not only holde them himself, but almost into every company he cometh, perswadeth men to Atheisme, willinge them not to be afrayed of bugbeares and hobgoblins, and utterly scorning both God and his ministers. And an unsubtle reading of any work of literature is the prerogative of the ignorant. If you tickle us, do we not laugh? Given that the immemorial Christian charge against the Jews is that they refused to acknowledge the meaning and message of Jesus Christ, but went on subjugating love to law, Shylocks unbending determination to have his pound of Antonios flesh can look like a confirmation. Hardly so, since, after all, he is known to have taken infinite care in choosing his words.

Soon after, the Jews were forced to live separate areas, called ghettos. In writing a novel based on The Merchant of Venice and giving it the title Shylock Is My Name, it might appear that I am doing for Shylock what demonstrators did for Charlie Hebdo earlier this year and making common cause with him: We are. In doing so, irrespective of the provocation, Shylock places himself well beyond the pale of human decency. Also, Shylock's young daughter has fled with a Christian and Shylock blames Antonio for helping this elopement that took away Shylock's "own flesh and blood. He refers to it as a "merry sport" something not to be taken seriously. 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? However, the implications of this strange agreement are only later revealed with the unfolding of unforeseen events. What is more, at the time of Shakespeare's play, hysteria concerning Jews was reaching new heights as a result of a trumped up plot against.
