This early Shakespearean comedy/problem play is spun around two plots:one involving the greedy creditor, Shylock, and the other, a marriage suitor's choice among three chests to win the hand of the creditor's beautiful daughter, Portia. The themes of compassion vs. ruthlessness and generosity vs. greed are resolved in a courtroom where Portia, disguised as a male barrister, delivers the famous speech "The quality of mercy is not strain'd . . .".
