Comment:        Re: SHK 16.1109 Anti-Semitism

Although not easily available, Shelley Malka's 'The Representation of
"the Jew" in selected sixteenth- and seventeenth-century writings, in
The Merchant of Venice and in its criticism' (unpublished PhD Thesis,
1995, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa) still offers a fine
account of writings on revenge and mercy to be found in the work of
Jewish writers contemporary to the period when Shakespeare's play is
likely to have been written.

Surely you are not saying that anti-Semitism is a political and social
myth. Right?
