(no subject)

I watched The Merchant of Venice on HBO In Demand yesterday. Actually, I watched it twice -- the first time was a little hard to follow. I still couldn't catch all the dialogue, so I guess I actually have to sit down and read it. :-)

I guess it's not surprising that I felt sorry for Shylock. Everyone in his life treats him like he's less than human, even his daughter. I think it was wrong of him to want Antonio to pay his debt with his life, but I can't blame him for being angry.

I know I have more to say about it, but I'm out of time right now.
