Der Kaufmann von Venedig illustriert

Genre: Performing Arts

Antonio, ein venezianischer Kaufmann, möchte seinen Freund Bassanio unterstützen, der auf Freiersfüßen wandelt: Bassanio hat sich in Portia, eine reiche junge Adelige, verliebt, und die Brautwerbung verspricht teuer, letztlich aber auch sehr lukrativ zu werden. Um dem Freund mit dem nötigen Geld unter die Arme greifen zu können, macht Antonio selber Schulden, und zwar bei dem jüdischen Geldverleiher Shylock. Shylock, der von den Christen Venedigs verachtet, von Antonio öffentlich beleidigt wird, und der seinerseits Antonio stellvertretend für alle Christen hasst, bietet im Gegensatz zu seiner üblichen Zinspraxis an, diesmal auf Zinsen zu verzichten. Als Sicherheit verlangt er, scheinbar zum Spaß, nur dies: Gelingt es dem Schuldner nicht, das geliehene Geld rechtzeitig zurückzuzahlen, so hat Shylock Anspruch auf „ein Pfund Fleisch“ aus Antonios Körper. Antonio willigt ein und unterschreibt einen entsprechenden Schuldschein, ist er sich doch sicher, dass seine Handelsschiffe, die zurzeit auf großer Fahrt sind, bald reich beladen nach Venedig zurückkehren werden.

Shakespeare s Symmetries

Author: James E. Ryan
Publisher: McFarland
ISBN: 9781476624167
Release Date: 2016-07-29
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

The organization of Shakespeare’s plays has challenged, even baffled audiences and critics since the 17th century. Cymbeline has been dismissed as “incoherent.” Hamlet “is of no clear shape.” And Antony and Cleopatra “bewilders the mind.” These judgments result from an incomplete understanding of Shakespeare’s constructive practice. It is not the narrative arc alone that organizes the plays but a complex structure of interwoven narrative and thematic actions. While the narrative varies from play to play, thematic actions are invariably created in mirroring pairs around the central scene: A-B-C-B-A. This symmetrical pattern, which can be visualized as an arch with a focal keystone, is the foundation of all of Shakespeare’s mature work, as shown through an analysis of the 26 plays in this book. This arch illuminates the structure of plays that have long been puzzling, demonstrating that they are thematically organized and rigorously crafted. It also reveals subtleties otherwise invisible.
