shylock’s ghost (presented by alan yentob) (in the imagine … series)

Alan Yentob travels to the ghetto in Venice with award-winning novelist Howard Jacobson as he embarks on a retelling of Shakespeare’s most performed play, The Merchant of Venice. Through a series of lively – often fiery – interviews, they examine the charge of anti-Semitism against Shakespeare, whose character Shylock remains one of the most odious and divisive fictional Jews in history.
How did the moneylender from Venice become such a useful propaganda tool in Nazi Germany? And how much of a liberty will Jacobson be taking when he uproots the action to modern-day Alderley Edge, and audaciously reinterprets the infamous ‘pound of flesh’?
Interviewees include • Antony SherAnthony Julius and • Stephen Greenblatt.”
