Summer Of Shakespeare: The Merchant Of Venice says
THE MERCHANT OF VENICE has a complicated and controversial history—in fact, that’s probably the one thing most people know about this play. We’ll discuss the way this play constructs its characters, the society they live in, and the themes of justice that pervade it—as well as how these themes are juxtaposed against the stereotypes and racism present in the text. How do modern productions handle this? How do we interpret this play, and how do we present it responsibly?

We look forward to our book clubs being fun and rewarding for attendees of all Shakespeare knowledge levels—whether this is your first time reading the Bard, or you’ve read the whole canon over twice. We’ll have different versions of each play tailored to different levels of familiarity with the text, so be sure to pick up the copy that suits you!
