The Merchant of Venice

The Play

To read the play online, click on one of the links below:

Alternately, you can go to Project Gutenberg and download one of three versions of the play, each one available as either a TXT or ZIP file.



  • Shakespeare and Anti-Semitism: The Question of Shylock is a wonderful page by Grant Stirling for those of you wishing to research further into anti-semetic beliefs of the Elizabethan era. It hasn't been updated in awhile, but it's so complete that it doesn't need to be updated.

Wow, I hate to say it, but that's it for "Merchant of Venice"-specific websites. You can, however, try some of the sites on my links page, some of which cover more than one play. If you know of any other sites, please e-mail me.
