Per poter corteggiare Porzia, il nobile Bassanio chiede un prestito al suo amico Antonio che, avendo investito tutte le sue ricchezze in traffici marittimi, deve a sua volta farsi prestare il denaro dall'usuraio ebreo Shylock. Il pegno è sconvolgente: se il denaro non sarà restituito il giorno fissato, Shylock potrà prelevare una libbra di carne dal corpo di Antonio. E questo l'inizio di uno dei drammi shakespeariani più rappresentati e letti, dove amicizia, amore, avidità, odio, ambiguità dei personaggi concorrono a caricare il testo di una straordinaria forza emotiva. La presente edizione viene proposta nella nuova traduzione e con il puntuale corredo di note a cura di Chiara Lombardi.

Work Description

In this lively comedy of love and money in sixteenth-century Venice, Bassanio wants to impress the wealthy heiress Portia but lacks the necessary funds. He turns to his merchant friend, Antonio, who is forced to borrow from Shylock, a Jewish moneylender. When Antonio's business falters, repayment becomes impossible--and by the terms of the loan agreement, Shylock is able to demand a pound of Antonio's flesh. Portia cleverly intervenes, and all ends well (except of course for Shylock).
