Appropriating Shylock's Jewishness into the broader field of Otherness, and using The Merchant of Venice as a pivot of its discourse, this book is an intellectual foray into many issues and areas of thought suggested by the play. Topics covered range from cultural history to folklore to medieval philosophy and theology, from politics of the theatre to literary theory, from Jewish history to early modern debates on property, usury, and slavery, all converging in the cultural and theatrical deployment of prophetic riddles in the play.
