Full description of the book "The Merchant of Venice: Complete & Unabridged":"The pound of flesh and the choice of the casket are the two themes, which make "The Merchant of Venice" memorable, and somewhat mystifying. For, in spite of the drama of Shylock's aborted revenge against his persecutors, the play is a comedy, and a romantic one at that, as the fifth act makes clear. The play was probably written in 1596. For it, Shakespeare borrowed from his own play, "The Two Gentlemen of Verona", the scene where Portia and Nerissa discuss the suitors, for the same listing of points of wooers is in the latter play between Julia and Lucetta; and Launcelot PDF Gobbo is a reincarnation of Launce." - G.B. Harrison, Editor of texts for the Shakespeare Recording Society.
