Antonio

Against Jews

Show of viciousness towards shylock:

Insults him critically.

Forced Shylock to become Christian; that is like destroying what the basis of what he is. E.g. Shylock sees himself ultimately as a Jew.

Characters Portia 1)   Court case: seeks mercy for Antonio and yet does not show much mercy to Shylock, forced Shylock to become Christian; that is like destroying what the basis of what he is. E.g. Shylock sees himself ultimately as a Jew.  However, due to the vicious nature of Shylock’s crime, it can be said that the verdict on him was quite merciful. 2)   Against people who are of a different race: e.g. the suitors. Badly dressed Englishman, uncouth and drunken German, hyperactive Frenchman Made stereotypes of them (Nerissa also made stereotypes with her)

Portia

1)   Court case: seeks mercy for Antonio and yet does not show much mercy to Shylock, forced Shylock to become Christian; that is like destroying what the basis of what he is. E.g. Shylock sees himself ultimately as a Jew.  However, due to the vicious nature of Shylock’s crime, it can be said that the verdict on him was quite merciful.

2)   Against people who are of a different race: e.g. the suitors. Badly dressed Englishman, uncouth and drunken German, hyperactive Frenchman Made stereotypes of them (Nerissa also made stereotypes with her)

Characters Shylock 1)     Against Christians. More of bitterness because of their treatment towards him. Evil: Gloats over Antonio’s misfortune, plotted revenge etc. 2)   The prejudice restricts his means of employment. Hence, he is forced to become a moneylender but this subjects him to even more discrimination by Christians against lending out money with interest (usance)--à vicious cycle that has made Shylock all cold-hearted. Maybe Jessica does not become like that because she is supported by her father and therefore does not need to face the difficulties yet. Also, by being protected in such a way she can remain as a “good” character and is able to say that although she is a Jew she does not follow after her father.

Implications/Consequences Jews being portrayed as the natural, stereotypical evil and money-minded persona. Jews, in the example of Shylock also ends up getting punished by the law and after that he totally disappears from the play. Instead, the plot moves on to the Christians and the romantic love story in Belmont, leaving behind the cruelty of Venice and similarly the cruelty that they have just dealt Shylock the Jew.
