Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice occupies a unique place in world culture. As the fictional, albeit iconic, character of Shylock has been interpreted as exotic outsider, social pariah, melodramatic villain and tragic victim, the play, which has been performed and read in dozens of languages, has served as a lens for examining ideas and images of the Jew at various historical moments. In the last two hundred years, many of the play's stage interpreters, spectators, readers and adapters have themselves been Jews, whose responses are often embedded in literary, theatrical and musical works. This volume examines the ever-expanding body of Jewish responses to Shakespeare's most Jewishly relevant play.

For the first time in a generation, leading scholars of medieval and Renaissance Venice join forces to define the current state of the field. Forays into neglected aspects of Venetian studies reveal new insights into coinage and concubinage, the first Jewish ghetto and the Fourth Crusade, and other matters from dowry inflation to state spectacle to cheese. These essays are emblematic of the dynamism that has marked Venetian scholarship over the past half-century, reflecting a shift in the definition of 'history' and 'historiography' from states, military engagements, and economies to prostitutes, brawlers, peasants, and the poor. Contributors bring to this volume impressive experience and expertise in the use of archival material to explore a rich variety of subject matter, interpretations, and methodologies. They draw on both public and private sources - tourist guides, eyewitness reports, government edicts, police records, diary entries, and literary sources in dialect - to articulate a compelling narrative of cultural change in an age of social discipline. Through topics such as Venice's Hostage Crisis: Diplomatic Efforts to Secure Peace with Byzantium between 1171 and 1184,
