Another read as part of my Shakespeare course. Read this over the course of a weekend and again thoroughly enjoyed it. This was my first time reading the Merchant of Venice and despite having heard of Shylock I knew little of the plot before the start of the week. Must be getting in the hang of Shakespeare as I was able to follow most of the plot including the sub-plots and twists – definitely enjoyed the twists as the crisis in the story resolved itself. Next up – Othello!
