Subject:        The Merchant of Venice

The _The Merchant of Venice_ gets little attention in this group.  Is it
because, in this age of political correctness, the play makes some
uncomfortable?  Is it true, as Bloom contends, that "the Holocaust made
and makes MV unplayable, at least in what appears to be its own terms"?

Can one teach or direct MV today & be faithful to "its own terms"?
