The Merchant of Venice

by William Shakespeare

Classified as a comedy in Shakespeare's First Folio, while it shares certain aspects with Shakespeare's other romantic comedies, the play is perhaps more remembered for its dramatic scenes, and is best known for the character Shylock and the 'pound of flesh'. The play's antisemitic aspects has gained more attention in recent years.
