A Pound of Flesh

Just a quick reminder, Gayle's [very erudite] Bard Blog is essaying Merchant of Venice, one of the English language's, first plays about finance and justice.  Yesterday she post this discussion on the classic expression a "pound of flesh", which is well worth reading--and a blog well-worth following!


  1. Thanks again, BL. Is that picture from the movie, or a stage version?

  2. It's an image snatched from Google images, of a stage version update, I loved it because insteead of Shylock, we have the shyster.
