Shaw says that he wrote the play in order to make the English aware of the importance of phonetics, and he is grateful that the play has been a great success on the stage. He complains that the way English is written has little to do with the way it is pronounced, and he pleads for a new alphabet and a reform in spelling. A

Shylock Throughout the course of history, Jews have been relentlessly persecuted. The English are not an exception, since their history shows that the general English attitude towards Jews during the Elizabethan Era is anti-Semitic. This negative bias towards Jews is apparently clear in Elizabethan literature, including William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. Shylock, the Jewish antagonist in Shakespeare’s play, is stereotypically portrayed as a villain in accordance to popular prejudice.
