Wayne State University Press
this week embarked on a new
venture—the publishing of pa-
perbacks.
One of the first five in the
new series is "Character and
Characterization in Shakes-
peare," by Dr. Leo Kirschbaum,
WSU professor of English.
Of major interest in this
study is the first essay, "Shy-
lock in the City of God," which,
as the introduction explains,
"shows the embellishment of a
traditional stage villain and the
submergence of the individual
`good' character within group
characteristics."
In this brief-30-page—but
very thorough study of the
subject of Shakespeare's han-
dling of the Jewish character
and the question of anti-Sem-
itism, Prof. Kirschbaum states:
"The tendency of the modern
psyche to exculpate Shylock be-
cause he is forced by society to
be what he is is to misunder-
stand the tenor of the whole
play. To Shakespeare and his
audience sociological deter-
minism was never a valid cause.
It was always a villain's ex-
cuse."
On the question of Shylock's
becoming a Cluistian, Dr.
Kirschbatun asserts: "It is
hard for moderns to see that
this request is also part of the
Christian mercy. Only if the
Jew is baptized can he escape
the eternal pains of hell. As
the Jew wished to kill the
ness which is Antonio,
tonio wishes to kill the
Alain which is in S
Adding that "times v e
changed," Prof. Kirschbaum
expresses the view:
"One has to adopt an his-
torical perspective for 'The
Merchant of Venice' in order
not to be shocked by what to
day seems sentimentally chau-
vinistic Christianity and nasty
obdurate anti-Semitism. Shake-
speare wrote a meaningful fan-
tasy about a bad ogre who tried
to hurt some good people in the
City of God, but Jews today are

so real that they can be seized
and burnt in Nazi crematoria.
But what Shakespeare's Jew
and Shakespeare's Antonio ethi-
cally stand for is, perhaps, also
real today. And some may say
that this is a conflict w Uch
must go on until th
is exterminated by
h%ro-
gen bomb."
The Kirschbaum study delves
into the question of anti-Sem-
itism as well as the Christian
reactions against a Jew. He con-
tends that "mercy is above
justice" as a moral in Shake-
speare's play.
