    I’ve chosen scene 1 and 3 of Act 3 to focus on how my understanding has deepened about Shylock.

From lines 40-68, Shylock expresses his extreme undying hatred towards Antonio, his agony in how the Christian community has dealt him unreasonably and heartlessly. This can be seen when Shylock…

  • Star Of David: Anti-Jewish Stereotypes

    War is an opportunity for oppressors to systematically oppress marginalized groups by establishing discriminatory social structures and constructs. This is especially apparent in Hitler’s campaign against Jewish people shortly before WWII.

  • Summary Of Stan Telchin's 'Abandoned'

    Abandoned by Stan Telchin reveals his personally journey, 20th century viewpoints of Jewish people, and ways to reach Jewish people for Yeshua.

Once it was known in the Jewish community that he had received Yeshua, Telchin was immediately pegged as an outsider. He was no longer one of “them”. He details an example of the “us” versus “them” mentality that…

  • Analysis Of Shylock In William Shakespeare's The Merchant Of Venice

    Shylock is a man who is despised by many, and he certainly has moments of extreme irrationality and inflexible insistence that make him a rather unappealing and even deplorable character. In “The Merchant of Venice,” Shakespeare not only paints Shylock as what some might say is the typical Jew, but also as a man who yearns to be respected and treated just the same as the “good” Christians of Italy. Shakespeare displays Shylock’s multifaceted persona that is a combination of anger, power, and…
