Storyboard Text

  • The Merchant of Venice Act 4, Scene 1 Amy Roan, 3L2
  • The Duke begins the trial by showing how impartial he is and that he is sorry for Antonio.
  • In Venice, the court convenes for Antonio's trial. The Duke says Shylock is an ...
  • inhuman wretch, uncapable of pity, void and empty from any dram of mercy.
  •  They're all sure that at the last minute Shylock will go back on his cruelty
  • Antonio arrives & shrugs this off.  It is no big deal.  He can face Shylock's anger.
  • Shylock, you have let things get dangerous.
  • You said you want a pound of Antonio's flash. Will you stick with this or will you go back on your word?
  • Answer gently Shylock.
  • Shylock speaks for himself at court, rather than having a lawyer. 
  • I am sworn by the Jewish holy Sabbath that I'll get what I'm owed for Antonio's forfeiture of the bond
  • I don't have to answer why I want a pound of Antonio's flesh & not 3,000 ducats. 
  • Bassiano arrives...
  • How cruel are you Shylock?  Do all men kill what they hate?
  • I will show no mercy for this man - I hate him!
  • Meanwhile...
  • Nothing is harder than the Jewish heart Shylock and nothing can soften it.  Finish all this pleading and hurry up to the trial's conclusion, so I can be judged and Shylock can get what he wants.
  • To be continued...
