                        Shakespeare's Hebrew

                           Florence Amit

The essay before you is in lieu of the work of two fine scholars, no
longer living, Leon Kellner and his follower, S. Schoenfeld whom I
quote here in regard  to "The Merchant of Venice". But because German and
in the case of Schoenfeld, also Hebrew, rather than English, were the
languages of their scholarship, they were little noticed by the academic
community. In regard to Schoenfeld, at least, I am trying to rectify
this and I have commissioned an English translation, of his book, "A
Hebrew Source for 'The Merchant of Venice'", with the permission of his
daughter, Mrs. Hanna Shoham. This will soon be available. In the mean
time I can meet any request to fax a review of Schoenfeld's then
unpublished work by Yehuda T. Radday, which appeared in the 1979
"Shakespeare Survey", 32. This presentation therefore, is not conceived as
comprehensive, but it is to help supply a lack.
