Sammanfattning

Harold Bloom writes "One would have to be blind, deaf and dumb not to recognize that Shakespeare's equivocal comedy The Merchant of Venice is nevertheless a profoundly anti-Semitic work" (Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human, 171). This article examines the role which theological discourse plays in The Merchant of Venice. It also addressess the issue whether and under what circumstances Shakespeare's play could / should be played in our post-Holocaust era. The article is based upon a lecture in Stockhom at a symposium which analysed The Merchant of Venice from different angles.
