Perhaps the most singular of Shakespeares romantic comedies, The Merchant of Venice is best remembered for its dramatic scenes, moving speeches and the unforgettable character of Shylock. Though not the merchant of the title of the play, Shylock wrests for himself a centrality of role that places Shakespeare much ahead of his times more or less a revolutionary, almost an iconoclast. This special student edition of The Merchant of Venice by RatnaSagar follows closely the A Verity edition not only with respect to the text but also annotations, which are suitably simplified for young readers. The analyses of characters, themes, plot and language provide a firm foundation for appreciating the play and go further to encourage original thinking in students regarding the story and the characters for which the play offers a rich ground.
