merchant of venice act 3-1

“Farewell, and if my fortune be not crossed, I have a Father, you a daughter lost.”, who said it and why is it beneficial – Jessica said it- she was saying that she is running aways with Lorenzo, and she dosen’t like her father shylock- shylocks a horrible person
“The fiend is at mine elbow and tempts me, saying to me…’Use your legs, take the start, run away.’ My conscience says, ‘No. Take heed… do not run.’ …To be ruled by conscience, I should stay with the Jew, who, God bless the mark, is the devil himself.”, who said it , why is it important Lancelot said this- he hates shylock, and he wants to run away, but his conscience says that he should stay- shylocks a horrible person
If it will feed nothing else, it will feed my revenge. He hath disgraced me, and hindered me half a million; laughed at my losses, mocked at my gains, scorned my nation, thwarted my bargains, cooled my friends, heated mine enemies; and what’s his reason? I am a Jew. – Shylock said it- he wants revenge, he is saying in this quote he wants equality- Shylock will cut a pound of Antonio’s flesh off
“Mislike me not for my complexion, the shadowed livery of the burnish’d sun, To whom I am a neighbor, and near bred. Bring me the fairest creature northward born, Where Phoebus’ fire scarce thaws the icicles, And let us make incision for your loveTo prove whose blood is reddest, his or mine.” – Morocco said this- he is speaking to portia, he is asking her to not judge him by his skin color- Gender stereotypes
“Why, yet it lives there unchecked that Antonio hath a ship of rich lading wracked on the narrow seas. The Goodwins I think they call the place—a very dangerous flat, and fatal, where the carcasses of many a tall ship lie buried, as they say, if my gossip report be an honest woman of her word.” – Solarino/Salarino- Antonios ships are wrecked, Shylocks gonna get a pound of flesh- Shylocks gonna get a pound of flesh from Antonio
The inscriptions on each casket, what’s inside, and what they mean. * Gold = it’s not about the outer beauty . “he who chooses me, gets what every man desires” *Silver =” he who chooses me get what every man deserves” , this is a mirror inside, *Lead = “who chooses me , gives or hazards what he has” , there is a painting of portia , they have to be willing to risk everything
Jessica and Lorenzo’s relationship and the conflicts (internal and external) they face by being together. External – judgement from society, sterotypesInternal – she has to convert to christianity , she has to leave shylock
The underlying meaning of the bond between Antonio and Shylock. Why is he so set on revenge? They have a strong hatred towards each other, Christian vs. Jew. Also Antonio called him names and spat on him . and that he would rather lose the money and have him dead then get the money and have him alive
Pick three characters from any story we read this year and say which casket they would choose if they were playing the lottery for Portia. Madame. Loisel would chose gold because she cares about her outer beautyZaroff would choose silver, because he is arrogant and he thought he was the bestMonsieur Loisel would chose the lead because he sacrificed his future for his wife to help pay debt
How does Shylock respond to the news that Antonio’s ships have gone down? Why does he react this way? Who tells him the news and how does this person “know” about Antonio’s ships? He is so happy, because he finally gets to get his revenge , Tobol tell the news that the ship has wrecked, he knows because of the survivor
