Shylock is not a Jewish name. However, some scholars believe it probably derives from the biblical name Shalah, which is שלח (Shelach) in furniture-of-ironforge.com is the grandson of Shem and the father of Eber, biblical progenitor of Hebrew peoples.

All the names of Jewish characters in the play derive from minor figures listed in genealogies in the Book of Genesis. You get to see Jessica, Shylock¿s daughter, much more closely too and the decisions that she makes have more background and further consequences.

There are new characters too.

The relationships are between Portia and her recently diseased father, the other involving Jessica and Shylock, a Jewish money lender. The first relationship emphasizes love, respect and trust whereas the other are obviously different.

A glamorous Hollywood film star, Jessica Pruitt fears the best days of her career are behind her. Arriving in Italy soon after losing custody of her young daughter, she hopes to forget her woes by serving as a judge at the Venice Film Festival and immersing herself in preparations for her starring role in a new cinematic take on The Merchant of Venice.

Shylock is the Tragic Hero here, losing both loving wife and devoted housekeeper to consumption, his vain, shallow daughter Jessica to a gold-digging Christian husband, and, finally, his entire estate thanks to an irrational, revenge-driven insistence on collecting that pound of flesh from a Christian debtor.

Book Reviews. Over the last 20 years The Historical Novels Review (the society’s print magazine for our members) has published reviews of some 18, historical fiction books. All contribute to her preparation to play Jessica in a new play entitled Shylock’s Daughter.

Jessica contrasts the exquisite mystique of this Serenissima, its. He is clearly more upset about the loss of possessions than about the loss of his daughter.

Any concern about his daughter arises only as she represents a return of his possessions. Again, Shylock’s selfish, greedy, and dark character comes through as he wishes for the return of his daughter dead or alive so he could get his jewels back.

I felt she was a bit repetitious referring to her having lost her daughter to the child's father.
