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 ...

Despite the growing critical relevance of Shakespeare's two Venetian plays and a burgeoning bibliography on both The Merchant of Venice and Othello, few books have dealt extensively with the relationship between Shakespeare and Venice. Setting out to offer new perspectives to a traditional topic, this timely collection fills a gap in the literature, addressing the new historical, political and economic questions that have been raised in the last few years. The essays in this volume consider Venice a real as well as symbolic landscape that needs to be explored in its multiple resonances, both in Shakespeare's historical context and in the later tradition of reconfiguring one of the most represented cities in Western culture. Shylock and Othello are there to remind us of the dark sides of the myth of Venice, and of the inescapable fact that the issues raised in the Venetian plays are tremendously topical; we are still haunted by these theatrical casualties of early modern multiculturalism.

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.

"Du bist also wirklich der Herr der Diebe", sagte der Fremde leise. "Nun gut, behalte deine Maske auf, wenn du dein Gesicht nicht zeigen möchtest. Ich sehe auch so, dass du sehr jung bist." Der Herr der Diebe - das ist der geheimnisvolle Anführer einer Kinderbande in Venedig, die er mit dem Verkauf der Beute aus seinen Raubzügen über Wasser hält. Keiner kennt seinen Namen, seine Herkunft. Auch nicht Prosper und Bo - zwei Ausreißer, die auf der Flucht vor ihrer Tante und dem Detektiv Victor Unterschlupf bei der Bande gefunden haben. Als Victor den Kindern tatsächlich auf die Spur kommt, bringt er dadurch alle in Gefahr. Aber endgültig scheint die Gemeinschaft der Bande aufzubrechen, als ein rätselhafter Auftrag, erteilt von dem mysteriösen "Conte", die Kinder auf eine Laguneninsel führt. Diese Insel, von außen unbewohnt und einsam scheinend, birgt ein Geheimnis, das alles verändert. Cornelia Funke, die schon mit ihrem zum Bestseller gewordenen Titel DRACHENREITER zeigte, welch weiten Atem ihr Erzähltalent hat, hält ihre Leser - gleich welchen Alters - auch mit diesem Buch von der ersten Zeile an gefangen. Sie führt uns durch ein winterliches Venedig, verstrickt uns in verwirrende Rätsel und erfüllt ihren Helden am Schluss einen alten Menschheitstraum.

New Readings of The Merchant of Venice

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.

The decay of the city of Venice is, in many respects, like that of an outwearied and aged human frame; the cause of its decrepitude is indeed at the heart, but the outward appearances of it are first at the extremities. In the centre of the city there are still places where some evidence of vitality remains, and where, with kind closing of the eyes to signs, too manifest even there, of distress and declining fortune, the stranger may succeed in imagining, for a little while, what must have been the aspect of Venice in her prime. But this lingering pulsation has not force enough any more to penetrate into the suburbs and outskirts of the city; the frost of death has there seized upon it irrevocably, and the grasp of mortal disease is marked daily by the increasing breadth of its belt of ruin.

Venice Reconsidered

The History and Civilization of an Italian City-State, 1297–1797

Venice Reconsidered offers a dynamic portrait of Venice from the establishment of the Republic at the end of the thirteenth century to its fall to Napoleon in 1797. In contrast to earlier efforts to categorize Venice's politics as strictly republican and its society as rigidly tripartite and hierarchical, the scholars in this volume present a more fluid and complex interpretation of Venetian culture. Drawing on a variety of disciplines—history, art history, and musicology—these essays present innovative variants of the myth of Venice—that nearly inexhaustible repertoire of stories Venetians told about themselves.
