Joe had replied privately to me sometime ago so I knew Shylock was not
represented as a ginger, but I'd not yet seen the images Thanks for
these, Joe! Curiously, it seems the redhead is none other than Portia!
She is often seen, by way of flattery, as a character a bit parallel
Queen Elizabeth. I guess Linton must have been onto her hair color.
(Now I'll have to go back to see if there is mention of her hair color
in the play.)
