Review: The Merchant of Venice

Shakespeare's play of the Merchant of Venice Arranged for Representation at the Princess's Theatre, with Historical and Explanatory Notes by Charles Kean, F.S.A.
The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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!
