Comment:	Re: SHK 19.0070 Untouchable Shakespeare

It is past time for students of Shakespeare to get their heads out of 
the gutter of anti-Semitism. The Merchant of Venice is no more 
anti-Semitic than Huckleberry Finn is racist. Shylock is not the Jew; he 
is the Devil. How many times does Shakespeare have to say that before we 
believe him?

Yours,
Bill Blanton
