  Shylock Is Shakespeare by Kenneth Gross, an excerpt
Shylock’s face, his words, in some cases his bare name, live a compulsive, shadowy life in our history and its conversations, always ready to emerge from the background, continuously woven into other forms of monstrous rumor or cunning lie, sustaining them, helping to enlarge their scope.
Shylock is a form of knowledge as well as a lie, not just shorthand for moneylender or Jew, but a name for a way of being, a certain relation to the past.
Shakespeare’s startling achievement is that whatever we call Shylock’s humanity emerges exactly through rather than simply in spite of the shapes of antisemitic abuse that frame his character onstage.

 Masterpiece Theatre | The Merchant of Venice | Essays + Interviews | Shylock and History
Shylock is a complex man, whose every action can be understood and who, finally, elicits understanding from his audience.
Shylock was the very picture of a man who suffered much at the hands of his fellow men and who had finally reached his breaking point.
Shakespeare, however, did not write a one-dimensional villain, but a complex character who defies explanation and who will probably never be fully understood.

 Amazon.com: Shylock Is Shakespeare: Books: Kenneth Gross   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Shylock, the Jewish moneylender in The Merchant of Venice who famously demands a pound of flesh as security for a loan to his antisemitic tormentors, is one of Shakespeare’s most complex and idiosyncratic characters.
Shylock is also a mask for Shakespeare’s own need, rage, vulnerability, and generosity, giving form to Shakespeare’s ambition as an author and his uncertain bond with the audience.
A bravura critical performance, Shylock Is Shakespeare will fascinate readers with its range of reference, its union of rigor and play, and its conjectural—even fictive—means of coming to terms with the question of Shylock, ultimately taking readers to the very heart of Shakespeare’s humanizing genius.

 All About Jewish Theatre - Shylock Festival in Jerusalem
After more than 400 years, Shakespeare's Shylock finally had his day in court at the Pargod Theater on Jerusalem's Bezalel Street on Saturday night, where an intimate crowd gathered to witness the infamous usurer from The Merchant of Venice take his creator to court for his theatrical vilification of the Jew.
An exercise in literary criticism, the mock trial marked the opening of the first annual International Shylock Theater Festival (December 20 to 25), established by Pargod Theater founder Arieh Mark to address the impact of anti-Semitic depictions of the Jew on stage.
The festival is part of The Shylock Project, the aim of which is to obtain support and resources for the establishment of research and education relating to the roots of Jew-hatred as manifested in the arts.

 Visualizing Shylock -Folger Shakespeare Library
An important way of understanding how Shylock, and Jewishness, have been viewed in different periods and cultures is the visual depiction of this controversial and poignant character.
Then have students come up with three specific and expressive adjectives to describe the Shylock of their piece.
Try having students view these images before reading the play and write a story about their picture, then compare that story to the play as they read.

 Shylock, a CurtainUp review
With due respect to Shakespeare's decision to call his play The Merchant of Venice, it is commendable that Armstrong has finally elevated Shylock to title role in his play.
It is unlikely that Shakespeare felt the need to be so culturally scrupulous as to create a menacing segregated antagonist who is also human.
With no apologies to Shakespeare, Shylock has forged a more dimensional and pro-active Tubal, who is only too happy to upstage the more professorial Armstrong when an opportunity to chew a little scenery comes along.

 All About Jewish Theatre - Since Shylock :The representation of Jews and Jewish life in drama for three centuries.
The eruption of Shakespeare’s Shylock onto the Elizabethan stage was so seismic it pre-empted the representation of Jews and Jewish life in drama for three centuries.
In one gulp Shakespeare’s imagination consumed Jewish paranoia in a world of Christian persecution, Jewish faith in contracts in a slippery society and their patriarchal rule over children, especially daughters.
This is the perplexed conclusion to a journey which began with Shylock’s righteous rage, the wisdom of Lessing’s Nathan the Wise, and the indignation of Wesker’s Shylock.

 All About Jewish Theatre - The Golem, Methuselah, and Shylock :Plays by Edward Einhorn
We are all familiar with the Golem of Jewish folklore, Methuselah of the Torah, and Shakespeare’s Shylock, but playwright Edward Einhorn has put a different spin on each of these legendary characters.
Devoting one play to each personality, the plays, respectively, are “Golem Stories,” “The Living Methusaleh,” and “A Shylock,” plus a fourth play titled “One-Eyed Moses and the Churning Red Sea.” (The latter is an eight-page playlet written for a festival which demanded that pieces be written within a 24-hour period.
Best of all is Einhorn’s Shylock in “A Shylock.” It is here that Einhorn’s style comes into its own.
