Shylock is my Name Kindle ☆ Shylock is eBook Ç ↠ PDF ukrbank.pro Profile of Howard Jacobson in The New York Times“The book's appeal to Jewish readers is obvious but like all great Jewish art — the paintings of Marc Chagall the books of Saul Bellow the films of Woody Allen — it is Jacobson's use of the Jewish experience to explain the greater human one that sets it apart Who among us is so certain of our identity? Who hasn't been asked What's your background and hesitated even for a split second to answer their inuisitor? Howard Jacobson's The Finkler uestion forces us to ask that of ourselves and that's why it's a must read no matter what your background”— David Sax NPR

    Shylock is my Name Kindle ☆ Shylock is eBook Ç ↠ PDF ukrbank.pro shylock kindle, name book, Shylock is mobile, Shylock is my Name ePUBShylock is My Name is a book I have been pining to read since I heard about it And it did live up to my expectations even though it was absolutely nothing like I was expecting it to be The writing style at the beginning completely threw me It was literature than I had expected even though this is a retelling of Shakespeare I somehow wasn't expecting it to be like that But the further I read the I fell in love with the beautiful writing style and the story The wording was done so well and it built up the story perfectly The best thing about this novel was how thought provoking it was It does help to have read The Merchant of Venice by Shakespeare because the book is based on it I was a little confused when I was trying to draw the parallels between this book and the play The storyline of Portia was clearly the same as the one of Plurabelle in this novel But Shylo

    Shylock is my Name Kindle ☆ Shylock is eBook Ç ↠ PDF ukrbank.pro shylock kindle, name book, Shylock is mobile, Shylock is my Name ePUBThis is an intelligent informed and brilliantly written engagement with Merchant it approaches the play thematically rather than strictly following the plot line although there's lots of that too and manages to be both inside and outside the play at the same time In a bold move Jacobson has his own modern Jewish protagonist with a troublesome daughter meet Shylock yes that Shylock in a local cemetery where he's speaking to his long dead wife Leah and takes him home The two men bond over what to do with Jewish daughters how to deal with lost wives and discuss what it means to be Jewish in a transhistorical way The other half of the book offers a modern update on the PortiaAntonioBassanio plot and makes lots of lovely knowing gestures the unpleasant edge to all these characters their vapid and sometimes deliberate prejudices the triangular nature of their relationship J
