THE WORDSWORTH CLASSICS' SHAKESPEARE SERIES PRESENTS A NEWLY-EDITED SEQUENCE OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S WORKS. THE TEXTUAL EDITING TAKES ACCOUNT OF RECENT SCHOLARSHIP WHILE GIVING THE MATERIAL A CAREFUL REAPPRAISAL. THE MERCHANT OF VENICE IS ONE OF SHAKESPEARE'S MOST POPULAR COMEDIES, BUT IT REMAINS DEEPLY CONTROVERSIAL. THE TEXT MAY SEEM ANTI-SEMITIC; YET REPEATEDLY, IN PERFORMANCE, IT HAS REVEALED A CONTRASTING NATURE. SHYLOCK, THOUGH VANQUISHED IN THE LAW-COURT, OFTEN TRIUMPHS IN THE THEATRE. IN HIS INTENSITY HE CAN DOMINATE THE PLAY, CHALLENGING ABRASIVELY ITS ROMANTIC AND LYRICAL AFFIRMATIONS. WHAT RESULTS IS A BITTER-SWEET DRAMA. THOUGH THE MERCHANT OF VENICE OFFERS SOME OF THE TRADITIONAL PLEASURES OF ROMANTIC COMEDY, IT ALSO EXPOSES THE OPERATIONS OF PREJUDICE. THUS SHAKESPEARE REMAINS OUR CONTEMPORARY.
