Shylock

Money

A money-lender

An occupation that is not respected

Stolen money

Cares as much for money as his daughter, 'oh my ducats, oh my daughter, oh my ducats'

Must give half his fortune to Antonio and half to the state

'The party against the which he dth contrive shall seize one half his goods, the other half, comes to the privy coffer of the state, and the offender's life lies in the mercy of the duke only'

Loves his ducats

"I shall never see my gold again..."

Has money stolen by Jessica

Money-lender

Cruelty

Chooses a pound of flesh over an increased amount of money

"If every ducat in six thousand ducats were in six parts and every part a ducat I would not draw them."

He cares as much about the missing money as his missing daughter

When Antonio tries to negotiate he insists "I will have my bond"

Happy when Antonio's ships sink

"Thank god, thank god."

Religion

Jewish

Persecuted in society

Hated for his wealth

Animosity with Christians, 'you call me misbeliever,cut throat dog,and spit upon my jewish gaberdine'

Forced to give up his religion, 'presently become a christian'

Weakness

Reduced in status by the court

"Nay, take my life and all, pardon not that"

Show to be a weak old man

'i pray you give me leave to go from hence i am not well, send the deed after me snd i will sign it'.

Revenge

Wants revenge on Antonio

Complicit in the loss of his daughter, 'I have a daughter would any of the stock of barabbas had been her husband, rather than a christian, we trifle times: i pray thee pursue sentence.

"If I can catch him once upon the hip I will feed fat the ancient grudge I bear him"

Dislikes Antonio for the way he is treated by him

"fair sir you spat on me Wednesday last"

Jessica

Keeps her locked in the house

For her safety?

To prevent her mixing with Christians, To protect her?, "nor thrust your head into the public street to gaze on Christian fools with varnished faces"

To prevent her mixing with men

'Nor thrust your head into the public street to gaze on christian fools with varnished faces'

Not allowed to enjoy her life

Backfires as she becomes determined to escape

Leaves with a Christian and steals a lot of Shylock's money, Marries a Christian: "become a Christian and thy loving wife."

Selfishness

Abuse of his daughter?

"Grippit" with his money

Lends money out for profit

The loan to Antonio is almost a gamble

Repayment

"I will have my bond"

Prejudice

Treated badly by society because he is a Jew

"Fair sir you spat on me Wednesday last..."

Helps the audience to sympathise with him

"If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die?"

Red caps

"I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions?"

Shylock hates Christians

"How like a fawning publican he looks! I hate him for he is a Christian."
