Money and Contract in The Merchant of Venice
The fortunes and misfortunes of Shylock and Antonio are pervaded with economic and legal ideas. Both characters tend to overlap and confuse in several dimensionsthe most celebrated one is to believe that the Jew is the merchantand are alternatively victim and victimizer.
