The Merchant of Venice

A love story. A bizarre puzzle to be solved by suitors. A loan. A demand for a pound of flesh in repayment. A trial to be argued by an heiress in disguise. All these combine in the first of Shakespeare’s so-called “problem plays”…

Bill Walthall (UCLA '85 English), a former high school English, Shakespeare, and Drama teacher, will read and blog about each of Shakespeare's plays, from The Comedy of Errors through The Tempest.
