The Merchant of Venice written between 1596 and 1598 is Shakespeare's comedy centred around love, money, prejudice and social injustice. The play centres around Antonio, an antisemitic merchant, who takes a loan from the Jew Shylock to help his friend to court Portia. Antonio can't repay the loan, and without mercy, Shylock demands a pound of his flesh. Portia, now the wife of Antonio's friend, decides to take action and save Antonio.

Considered one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies, The Merchant of Venice remains a searing exploration of prejudice and the power of mercy.
