THE MERCHANT OF VENICE Is a tragic comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1596 and 1598. Though classified as a comedy shares certain aspects with Shakespeare's other romantic comedies, the play is perhaps most remembered for its dramatic scenes, and is best known for Shylock and the famous 'Hath not a Jew eyes' speech. Also notable is Portia's speech about the 'quality of mercy'. This situation leads to a trial attended by the Doge of Venice, Portia, dressed as a lawyer named Baltazar and Nerissa like a Assistant. Portia makes an excellent speech about the piety, but Jew is trying to get his pound of flesh, Porcia gives reason to Shylock and admits that this, by law, can get it pound of flesh. However can only be meat, and so you can not spill a single drop of blood, was not written in the contract. THE LAW OF VENICE SAYS THAT IT CAN NOT PREJUDICIAL EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY THE LIFE OF A CITIZEN, THE PERSON AGAINST WHOM CONSPIRES SEIZED HALF OF THEIR GOODS AND THE OTHER HALF SHOULD BECOME THE STATE. Thus the Dux takes away their riches, and gives half to Antonio and half to the State. Antonio says he forgives his part if it is converted to Christianity.
In the end Portia and Nerissa confess them the truth to Antonio, Lorenzo and Graciano. LAW IN "THE MERCHANT OF VENICE We must be very careful in drafting contracts, everything must be in writing and clear, so there will be no option to multiple interpretations. Both interpretations will always be in our favor and against.
We must bear in mind that in our law, unlike what might happen in the medieval past, NOT EVERYTHING IS NEGOTIABLE. There are inalienable rights, void clauses and sanctions the use of law antisocial.
•In this case we find a consensual agreement, dated back some of the amount paid and a penalty clause in favor of the creditor in case of default by the debtor (the pound of flesh from Antonio). "The covenant is law between the parties"), this is a principle of contract law that is in effect at present. Shylock, requires completion of contract for failure: "a pound of flesh from Antonio."
Dr. Baltasar says in the contract has not been agreed bloodshed of the debtor to get a pound of meat, and can not be put at risk the life of Antonio.
For violating the penal clause against life and health of the debtor, Dr. Baltasar requests compensation half the goods in favor of Antonio (what we know today as "counterclaim") and the other half for the Venetian state. Bibliography THE MERCHANT OF VENICE María Fernanda Guerrero

Bassanio, in love with Jessica Gratiano:  friends of Antonio
and Bassanio PORTIA : a rich heiress Bassanio: Antonio's friend;
suitor to Portia Shylock: a rich Jew, moneylender, father of Jessica Antonio: a Merchant of Venice HISTORY This film was developed in the 16th century.
Antonio, who has all your money spent on their ships abroad, decides to ask given the money to Shylock.
He agrees to lend the money on the condition that, if the money is not returned in three months, Antonio will have to give Shylock a pound of his own flesh close to her heart.

At that time there were fights between the Jews and the Christians, Jews could not have properties, Shylock was a Jew who lent money with interest so Bassanio, a Venetian that belonged to the nobility, but it was poor, so asks his best friend, Antonio, a rich merchant, that lend 3,000 ducats for love to Portia the heiress. Now, we in our view as college students, now we could highlight the violation of the following rights:

•No one shall be subjected to enforced disappearance, torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading
•The pound of flesh from Antonio was a cruel.
•There will be no discrimination based on religion:
•Shylock, a Jew was a victim of mistreatment by Christians as Antonio.
•No one shall be molested on account of his convictions or beliefs.
•Everyone has the right to practice their religion freely. http://www.banrepcultural.org/blaavirtual/derecho/constitucion-politica-de-colombia-1991/titulo-2-capitulo-1

Bassanio chooses the third, which is correct and agrees with Portia. She gives him a ring as a sign of love, and makes him promise to Bassanio to not be removed it. The same does Nerissa, Portia’s housemaid, with Graciano , a Bassanio’s friend.

At that time Antonio sends a letter to Bassanio telling him that all its boats have shipwrecked, so he is in the ruin and the Jewish lender wants to make him pay with a pound of flesh, such which had been written in the loan document, Bassanio tells all Portia and returns to Venice to help his friend Antonio paying double the debt (6000 ducats).
