his two Venetian plays, two plays
which may well be thought the
most profound recorded analysis of
the relation of Jew and Christian,
of white man and black man."
The two authors also aver: "It
was only in Venice that Othello
and Shylock could act out their
potentials; they were foreigners,
and only Venice provided them
freedom and a place in the city."
The study of Shylock and the
other "Merchant" characters dif-
fers in many respects from previ-
ous studies. The elevation of Por-
tia, usually considered less power-
ful that the character delineated
in the Bloom-Jaffa study, to great
glory, does not sound too convinc-
ing. "The Merchant of Venice" is
not generally considered among
Shakespeare's outstanding plays as
these two authors claim, and the
riffraff who are in the cast of
characters hardly deserve the
treatment accorded them here.
Their conclusion is: "Shakes-
peare does not understand Juda-
ism, for he saw it from the out-
side; he looked at it, as no man
rightfully can, from a purely po-
litical point of view. But he was
personally less interested in the
question of Judaism than in man's
attempt to become man and man
So far so good, but in view of
the possibility that the Shylock
theme was akin to another similar
tale in which the character was
not a Jew, and because there
really were anti-Jewish attitudes
in Shakespeare's time although
there were no Jews in England at
the time, the book under review
does leave the reviewer a bit puz-
zled. It is not an entirely con-
