The Merchant of Venice is a 16th-century play written by William Shakespeare in which a merchant in Venice named Antonio defaults on a large loan provided by a Jewish moneylender, Shylock.
Shakespeare and the Law: A Critical Analysis
The trial of Antonio in a Venetian court of justice begins. The Duke of Venice warns Antonio, the defendant, that the plaintiff Shylock is "a stony adversary. He knows that "no lawful means" can save him now. Shylock is called then, and when he enters, the duke says that everyone — "the world thinks, and I think so too" — thinks that he should relent at the last moment and spare Antonio, taking "pity on his losses. He wants it only because of "a lodged hate and a certain loathing" for Antonio. Bassanio then tries to reason with Shylock — but without success.
Pause a day or two Before you hazard, for in choosing wrong I lose your company. Therefore forbear awhile. But lest you should not understand me well— And yet a maiden hath no tongue but thought— I would detain you here some month or two Before you venture for me. I could teach you How to choose right, but I am then forsworn. So will I never be. So may you miss me.
Emerging in the s and gaining enough traction to be termed a movement by the mids, the study of law and literature has important implications for the practice of law. The law and literature movement aspires to create an amalgamation of the two fields with the goal that shortcomings of the law are ameliorated to an extent by literary theory. Some theorists, such as Jane B. At the same time, Baron critiques the law and literature movement for its fractured nature, arguing that it has undermined itself from within as the strands of the movement, humanist, hermeneutic and narrative, are quite disparate. If her above assertions are correct, then a harmonized law and literature movement may be more adept in filing the gaps in the law. In other words, a harmonization of the movement can lead to legal system that is more attuned to the nuanced nature of human connections and also possibly lead to lawyers who are better able to serve clients due to their understanding of the nuances and complexities at play. A text that comes particularly close to such harmonization of the strands in a compelling and cohesive manner appears in the form of William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice.
Here we've listed a few of the well-known quotes in The Merchant of Venice, in order of appearance in the play. I hold the world but as the world, Gratiano, A stage where every man must play a part, And mine a sad one. Antonio, Act 1 Scene 1 God made him, and therefore let him pass for a man. Portia, Act 1 Scene 2 I will buy with you, sell with you, talk with you, walk with you, and so following, but I will not eat with you, drink with you, nor pray with you. What news on the Rialto? Shylock, Act 1 Scene 3 How like a fawning publican he looks! I hate him for he is a Christian, But more, for that in low simplicity He lends out money gratis and brings down The rate of usance here with us in Venice.
By examining each of these characters, I will illustrate how a world of commerce and contract has a tendency to reduce all relationships to motives of self-interest, utility, and profit. From the play it is made known that Venice is a city based on commerce with its law of contract enforced — even if a pound of flesh were demanded — for otherwise the law would lose its legitimacy and all trade and justice would cease to exist. As Antonio observes about his bond of flesh with Shylock, who had demanded its fulfillment:. Consisteth of all nations III. Although in this particular case the enforcement of contract seems unreasonable, the great benefit to a city like Venice that is founded and governed by commerce and contract is that motives of self-interest, utility, and profit override the natural tendency to exclude, persecute, or kill strangers. Instead of excluding or killing Jews, Christians seek to make a profit with or out of them and vice versa. Prejudice still exists in Venice but persecution and murder do not.
The Merchant of Venice is a study of law and love Will much impeach the justice of the state, Christians might raise the price of pork.
Contract, Friendship, and Love in The Merchant of Venice
SALARINO Your mind is tossing on the ocean; There, where your argosies with portly sail, Like signiors and rich burghers on the flood, Or, as it were, the pageants of the sea, Do overpeer the petty traffickers, That curtsy to them, do them reverence, As they fly by them with their woven wings. I should be still Plucking the grass, to know where sits the wind, Peering in maps for ports and piers and roads; And every object that might make me fear Misfortune to my ventures, out of doubt Would make me sad. I should not see the sandy hour-glass run, But I should think of shallows and of flats, And see my wealthy Andrew dock'd in sand, Vailing her high-top lower than her ribs To kiss her burial. Should I go to church And see the holy edifice of stone, And not bethink me straight of dangerous rocks, Which touching but my gentle vessel's side, Would scatter all her spices on the stream, Enrobe the roaring waters with my silks, And, in a word, but even now worth this, And now worth nothing? Shall I have the thought To think on this, and shall I lack the thought That such a thing bechanced would make me sad?
On the surface, the main difference between the Christian characters and Shylock appears to be that the Christian characters value human relationships over business ones, whereas Shylock is only interested in money. The Christian characters certainly view the matter this way. O, my daughter! With these words, he apparently values his money at least as much as his daughter, suggesting that his greed outweighs his love.
Такси следовало за Беккером, с ревом сокращая скорость. Свернув, оно промчалось через ворота Санта-Крус, обломав в узком проезде боковое зеркало. Беккер знал, что он выиграл. Санта-Крус - самый старый район Севильи, где нет проездов между зданиями, лишь лабиринт узких ходов, восходящих еще к временам Древнего Рима. Протиснуться здесь могли в крайнем случае только пешеходы, проехал бы мопед.

Превозмогая боль, он бежал через гардеробную. У алтаря кто-то кричал, за спиной у него слышались тяжелые шаги. Беккер толкнул двойную дверь и оказался в некотором подобии кабинета. Там было темно, но он разглядел дорогие восточные ковры и полированное красное дерево.
Вчера вечером я скачал файл Танкадо и провел у принтера несколько часов, ожидая, когда ТРАНСТЕКСТ его расколет. На рассвете я усмирил свою гордыню и позвонил директору - и, уверяю тебя, это был бы тот еще разговорчик. Доброе утро, сэр. Извините, что пришлось вас разбудить. Почему я звоню. Я только что выяснил, что ТРАНСТЕКСТ устарел. Все дело в алгоритме, сочинить который оказалось не под силу нашим лучшим криптографам! - Стратмор стукнул кулаком по столу.
Код страны - 1. Действительно хорошая новость. ГЛАВА 54 - Пусти. А потом раздался нечеловеческий крик. Это был протяжный вопль ужаса, издаваемый умирающим зверем. Сьюзан замерла возле вентиляционного люка.
Да, это. Он - лжец. Он вел себя бесчестно по отношению ко многим людям, и Сьюзан Флетчер - одна из. Он очень о многом ей не сказал - о многих вещах, которых теперь стыдился. Она была его иллюзией, его живой фантазией. Он мечтал о ней по ночам, плакал о ней во сне. Он ничего не мог с собой поделать.
Но Стратмор понимал, что Хейл не станет долго держать язык за зубами.
