  • Read the poems you have been given and make some annotations [due Tuesday]
  • Do some research into one of the poets and take notes in OneNote [due Tuesday]

[Shylock] seems the depositary of the vengeance of his race; and though the long habit of brooding over daily insults and injuries has crusted over his temper with inveterate mis-anthropy, and hardened him against the contempt of mankind, this adds but little to the triumphant pretensions of his enemies.- Hazlitt

Don’t forget:
I will be at school on Monday 21st (9-12) for a revision session and Tuesday 29th (9-12) for a practice exam. You are very welcome to join and get some help with stuff, and even complete a practice essay.

The PREP for the term break is:

  • Develop revision resources for yourself that you can put up everywhere at home and will see ALL THE TIME
  • Know the play well, re-read if need be
  • Be sure you know the process to follow before you start writing.

The interactions between Antonio, Shylock, and Portia–that is, between merchant, usurer, and landlord–play out the new set of economic interactions that accompanied the birth of capitalism. The play’s portrayal of these interactions and of the Venetians’ reactions to Shylock and Antonio position the comedy as an exploration of the cultural anxieties surrounding the historical emergence of free markets- Melanie Long

  • Check PREP tracker section
  • Choose an extract from a key moment and paste into W9- extracts page [due Tuesday]
  • Work on completing plot and structure table [due Wednesday]

So can I give no reason, nor I will not,
More than a lodged hate and a certain loathing
I bear Antonio, that I follow thus
A losing suit against him. – Shylock

  • Work on plot notes
  • Read Acts 2&3 [due Tuesday] You can use the No Fear Shakespeare version (http://nfs.sparknotes.com/merchant) to help you understand if you like, and the film will help also.
