To Hirsh Schipper:
 
You may wish to read Richard A. Levin's LOVE AND SOCIETY IN SHAKESPEAREAN
COMEDY, chapters 2 and 3, for another view of Shylock and the Christian society
of THE MERCHANT OF VENICE. And you may wish to ask yourself how Antonio makes
his money, and how Bassanio gets his money. Are they admirable members of the
community? What products do they "make"?
 
Happy New Year (one of them, anyway), Bill Godshalk
