Abstract:

"This collection of essays is aimed at students working on The Merchant of Venice who are looking for new ways of thinking about Shakespeare's most controversial play and new ways of thinking about their own practice as critics. The collection offers an exciting selection of the more recent writings on the play that opens up its historical, cultural, and political significance, and serves to demonstrate some of the ways in which contemporary criticism is both based upon critical theory and is also about the practice of criticism. This is a challenging and helpful collection of essays by some of the liveliest critics working on Shakespeare today."--Jacket.
