The Merchant of Venice
Many factors of this play are derived from the
current voice of situation. The Merchant of Venice could be looked at as
more tragic because of the negative intents from some of the characters
in the play.
Greed and deception are just a couple of the main features from where
many of the decisions are derived. For example, revenge was an intent
that Sylock had against for Antonio, only to say the least for, greed...
Antonio is being a set victim for revenge because of his deception
against Shylock, and also for prior intent to do.
If The Merchant of Venice was to be looked at as more comic, the
scenarios wouldn’t be taken as seriously as they should be. Infact I
believe that The Merchant of Venice written by William Shakespeare was
officially intended to be so in both comic and tragic. In depth looking
and observing The Merchant of Venice I have seen a small equivalency in
the amount of comicness and tragedy in the play.
I have come up with the conclusion that William Shakespeare was a great
playwright and must have been an absolute genius to compose the great
and wonderful things that he did. The Merchant of Venice is excellent in
it’s way of describing the characters. The emotion is spread out
thoroughly like warm butter on hot toast. The tragedy in The Merchant of
Venice is believable and almost true in a sense of my opinion in
relating to greed, human desire, and most important let not forget,
Throughout The Merchant of Venice there are many strong feelings
displayed through powerful lines of contemporary nature, to be truthful.
William Shakespeare most likely wrote this play The Merchant of Venice
to display how human greed could be so consuming to the soul of a
person, which he did very well if I may say so.
The spunk and enthusiasm of this play makes it engrossing to the reader
or viewer and also keeps the audience engaged in what is going to happen
next. The comicness is also brought out by each character by the
necessary parameters to do so for the viewer or reader. The Merchant of
Venice also states that supply and demand can vary depending on personal
opinion and outlook from a single personal view on the subject. Deriving
a picture from this play is extremely easy due the descriptive and
emotional content of it.
Greed in The Merchant of Venice is the most popular and looked upon
subject in the whole entire play from where we are up to now in the
class. In my opinion greed in a bad thing almost all of the time. There
are always exceptions to everything. The reason why greed is so bad is
because it turns you into a bad person, usually. If you live in a void
of greed there is probably no hope you possibly wanting something just
for the appreciation of it or something else. Through the eyes are some
characters where they don’t even realize what greed is because they are
constantly surrounded by it.
In my personal opinion, I think that The Merchant of Venice is a decent
play, but not as good as some of William Shakespeare’s other plays such
as The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and Othello. No matter
which play written by William Shakespeare is looked at, it is classified
as one of the greatest plays in history and written by the most well
The English dramatist and poet William Shakespeare was the author of the
most widely admired and influential body of literature by any individual
in the history of Western civilization. His work consists of 36 plays,
154 sonnets, and 2 narrative poems. Knowledge of Shakespeare is derived
from two sources: his works and those remains of legal and church
records and contemporary allusions through which scholars can trace the
external facts of his life.
Shakespeare wrote his plays for performance, not publication, and
apparently took no part in their printing. Nineteen plays appeared in
individual quarto volumes before appearing in the First Folio. Some were
printed from texts reconstructed from memory by the actors, whereas
others were supplied to the printer by the company. Shakespeare's
indifference to publication creates problems in dating and establishing
accurate texts for the plays.
Through to the end of The Merchant of Venice, a final decision can be
extracted fully to weather the play is more comic than tragic or vice
versa. William Shakespeare is one who’s works will never be forgotten
and will be taught to many generation to come in the later years.
