nice, thank you(Original post by DreamingBigger)
ok I'll sum them up a bit though
for prejudice, i have obviously got all the shylock stuff and then compare it to Othello and how shylock is made to seem like the deserved comedic loser due to his greed but Othello is the tragic protagonist.
then I have all the religion stuff cause they always make shylock nameless just Jew but then everything virtuous and perfect is Christian, e.g. Antonios Christian blood in the trial
for hypocrisy there's all the trial stuff and the mercy and then suddenly it flips and bassanios speech near the caskets bit about the deceived by ornament
I could probably discuss if the play is comic or tragic with ref to King Lear and Hamlet or the female role with Jessica, Portia and Nerissa but I'd prefer the more interesting ones like prejudice
Hope this helps you
tbh I only had one of those in common :') rip I'v never linked to other Shakespeare plays only, like, context stuff from the contemporary audience and their racism (Jew of Malta - Marlowe)
anyway, best of luck! And thanks!
