Hour 1 -- Shylock is Shakespeare

In the first hour, listeners will hear from Kenneth Gross, Professor of English at the University of Rochester and author of the book, Shylock Is Shakespeare. Shylock is the Jewish moneylender in The Merchant of Venice who famously demands a pound of flesh as security for a loan to his antisemitic tormentors. He's one of Shakespeare’s most complex and idiosyncratic characters and a source of perennial fascination. What explains the strange and enduring force of this character, so unlike that of any other in Shakespeare’s plays? In-studio guest Kenneth Gross posits that the figure of Shylock is so powerful because he is the voice of Shakespeare himself. Included in this discussion -- other literary characters that make modern readers squrim.
