Mitten in der Nacht steht ein venezianischer Adliger aufgewühlt vor der Tür der jüdischen Hebamme Hannah: Seit Tagen liegt die Frau des Conte schon in den Wehen, und nun fürchtet er um das Leben von Mutter und Kind, sollte Hannah ihnen nicht helfen. Doch der jungen Hebamme ist die medizinische Behandlung von Christen untersagt. Hin- und hergerissen zwischen Mitgefühl und Angst, erkennt Hannah in der Bitte des Conte auch eine Chance und stellt mutig eine Bedingung: Wenn es ihr gelingt, das Kind des Conte di Padovani zu retten, verlangt sie jene Geldsumme, die sie braucht, um ihren auf Malta als Sklaven gefangen gehaltenen Mann Isaak freizukaufen. Der Conte willigt ein. Doch mit der Geburt des Kindes gerät Hannah in immer größere Gefahr. Die um ihr Erbe fürchtenden Brüder des Conte di Padovani trachten ihr und dem Baby nach dem Leben, Venedig wird von der Pest bedroht, und es bleibt kaum noch Zeit bis zum Ablegen des Schiffes, das sie zu Isaak bringen soll ...

Carlo Collodi, eigentlich Carlo Lorenzini (1826-1890) war ein italienischer Schriftsteller und Journalist. Meister Seppel, der Marionettenschnitzer, kommt aus dem Staunen nicht mehr heraus: die Puppe, die er gerade geschnitzt hat, ist lebendig! Er tauft sie Pinocchio und schnell zeigt sich: Pinocchio ist eigensinnig und rücksichtslos. Um ihm ein Schulbuch besorgen zu können, verkauft Meister Seppel seine einzige Jacke. Auf dem Weg zur Schule fühlt sich Pinocchio aber magisch von einem Puppentheater angezogen. Das ist der Anfang eines bewegten Abenteuers, in dem sich Pinocchio durch seinen Eigensinn immer wieder in große Probleme bringt. Trotzdem erfüllt sich am Ende Pinocchios großer Wunsch - ein richtiger Junge aus Fleisch und Blut zu werden.

The Merchant of Venice of William Shakespeare

Page: 288

The Merchant Of Venice Bases Its Dramatic Logic On The New Testament Premise That You Get What You Give, And The Play S Consistent Enactment Of This Looking-Glass Logic Creates A World In Which Mirroring Is A Major Internal Principle Of Order. The Indian Philosophy, Distilled In Our Vedas, Puranas And Epics, Speaks In Almost The Same Vein. Shylock Is Cunning, Cruel And Implacable. For Centuries, The Shylocks Of India, In Various Garbs, Have Tried And Succeeded Partially, To Get Their Pounds Of Flesh From Their Victims. Usury Was Condemned In The Elizabethan Period But We, In India, Still Nourish It. Secondly, Shylock S Sense Of Jessica Is Anti-Human As Well As Anti¬Social. He Is Aware Of Her As Of An Item Of Inventory, As Many Father, In India, Do With Their Daughters.Bassanio Must Have Learnt From Shylock S Example: A Wrong, Even A Small One, Is Always A Wrong And Calls Forth Its Own Punishment Automatically, For, As We Shall See, In Dr. Agarwalla S Interpretation Of The Play, The Law Sleeps Only Until Unoffended, When It Reacts By Reflecting The Offence In Kind. The Law Has No Power To Make Anyone Choose To Do Right, It Can Only Punish Those Who Do Wrong. The Prince Of Morocco, Like Any Prince Of Yester-Years, In India, Is Chivalrous, Amorous, Gracious And Sexually Virile. It Was Unkind Of Portia To Say Uncomplimentary Words For Him But She, Like White-Skinned Ladies, Have Always Done So In The Past And Are Doing It, At Present. Thus The Merchant Of Venice Is As Much Relevant To Indians As It Was And Is To The English And To The World, In General. Dr. Shyam S. Agarwalla Gives A New Approach, A New Presentation And A New Direction To The Reading And Critical Analysis Of The Play. At Times, His Critical Examination Of The Play Is Unconventional, Provocative But Nonetheless Educative. That Marks Him Off From Other Indian Editors Of The Merchant.

Peter Dawkins ideas provide a unique insight into the philosophical and spiritual traditions of Shakespeare's age. They elucidate and elaborate the mythic patterns within the text and highlight its role as a Mystery Drama in the Greek tradition. Students of Wisdom teachings, theatre practitioners and interested theatregoers will enjoy this fascinating and provocative exploration of one of Shakespeare's most controversial plays. Written to complement the Globe Theatre's production of "The Merchant of Venice", this work allows the reader to understand the philosophical and spiritual traditions of Shakespeare's age. As well as placing the play in context, the author shows how the five main plots of the play develop and how certain themes within the play relate to philosophical traditions dating back to the Ancient Greeks. These philosophical traditions are shown to be at the heart of any understanding of "The Merchant of Venice" and by looking in detail at them the book provides new insights for both audiences and actors alike.

New Readings of The Merchant of Venice

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 210

The last decade has witnessed a spate of high-profile presentations of The Merchant of Venice: the 2004 Michael Radford film, 2010’s New York City “Shakespeare in the Park” production, as well as the play’s Tony Award-nominated 2010-11 Broadway run. Likewise, new scholarly works such as Kenneth Gross’s Shylock is Shakespeare (2006) and Janet Adelman’s Blood Relations (2008) have offered poignant insights into this play. Why has this drama garnered so much attention of late? What else can we learn from this contentious comedy? How else can we read the drama’s characters? Where do studies of The Merchant of Venice go from here? This collection offers readers sundry answers to these questions by showcasing a sampling of ways this culturally arresting play can be read and interpreted. The strength of this monograph lies in the disparate approaches its contributors offer – from a feminist view of Portia and Nerissa’s friendship to psychoanalytic readings of allegories between the play and Shakespeare’s Pericles to a reading of a Manga comic book version of The Merchant of Venice. Each essay is supported by a strong basis in traditional close reading practices. Our collection of scholars then buttresses such work with the theoretical or pedagogical frameworks that reflect their area of expertise. This collection offers readers different critical lenses through which to approach the primary text. Although Shakespeare scholars and graduate students will no doubt appreciate and employ the work of this collection, the primary audience of this anthology is undergraduate students and the professors who work with them. Many budding scholars have had the experience of checking out a monograph from the library and then finding it was a waste of time because the author spends three hundred pages discussing a perspective of which they have no interest. With this collection, students will not only see how multi-faceted interpretations of the play can be but they also are more likely to find essays that appeal to their own research interests.
