These writings were all written with some kind of purpose to either inform, persuade, entertain, or teach their audience.

    Anti-Semitism in The Merchant of Venice It is my strong belief that the play, 'The Merchant of Venice', should be taught in classes. If this play was banned from schools it would most certainly be a form of censorship.

People would see how everyone was hurt at one time or another by a prejudice, whether ...

    "I find it impossible to think of Shylock as a really nice chap; he is just better quality stuff than any of the Christians in the play. They are truly vile, heartless, money-grabbing monsters, and when Shylock makes his final exit, destroyed by defeat, one should sense that our Christian brothers are at last thoroughly ashamed of them-selves. The Merchant of Venice is horrid, cruel, and one of the most popular plays in the whole collected volume of Shakespeare". Laurence Olivier Well, there you...

    The play "Everyman" is about a complacent Everyman who is informed by Death of his approaching end.

    "Aggressive: I, sir, if that nose were mine, I'd have it amputated-on the spot! Friendly: How do you drink with such a nose You ought to have a cup made specially.
