    Shylock adds, however, that should the loan go unpaid, Shylock will be entitled to a pound of Antonio’s own flesh. Despite Bassanio’s warnings, Antonio agrees. In Shylock’s own household, his servant Launcelot decides to leave Shylock’s service to work for Bassanio, and Shylock’s daughter Jessica schemes to elope with Antonio’s.   Pryce makes a strong case for Shylock's demand for a pound of flesh in this gorgeously stylized production of "The Merchant of Venice." ‘The Merchant of Venice’ Review: Jonathan Pryce at.

    Hence in Shylock’s case, greed overpowers compassion. However, when we inspect closely, this difference between the two opposite characters breaks down. In Act III, Scene I, Shylock’s dissatisfaction is not due to the monetary loss of the ring, rather the fact that his daughter sold the token of . Shylock suggests he can use Antonio's flesh as fish bait, but the most important thing the human meat will feed is Shylock's hunger for revenge. Shylock lists off the little and big cruelties to which Antonio has subjected him and points out that Antonio's reason for all this hatred is simply that Shylock is a Jew.

      It is a case based on the ''humanity'' of Shylock's great speech, ''If you prick us do we not bleed?,'' and is a humanity countered by a dubious celebration of Christian mercy not evident in this.   The program is an unscripted mock appeal of Shylock’s case from Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice,” imagining what takes place after the play ends. The appeal also addresses Portia’s impersonation of a man and a lawyer, as well as the merits of Antonio’s proposed solution requiring Shylock to convert to Christianity and distribute his wealth.
