The Merchant of Venice Lesson 7: The Trial Scene
Transcript of The Merchant of Venice Lesson 7: The Trial Scene
As you come in...
Have a go at working out these anagrams.
Now we've seen some of the film...
Answer these questions in your book. Then I might let you watch some more.
I'd like you to focus on what Shylock's doing.
Every time we see him in a new scene, I'd like you to write down
he's talking to and
he's saying it.
Salanio and Salarino (Antonio's friends) met up with Shylock and taunted him about Jessica's elopement.
They asked Shylock whether he knew if what was said about Antonio's ships was true.
Shylock says that Antonio will soon be bankrupt and he swears to collect his bond.
Bassanio picks the lead casket. Opening it, he finds a portrait of Portia and a poem confirming his winnings.
Portia gives Bassanio a ring that she makes him promise to keep on, as if he removes it, it signifies the end of his love for her.

Were in six parts, and every part a ducat,
I would not draw them. I would have my bond."

Do you think Shylock will go through with it?
Bassanio recieves a letter from Antonio, saying that all of his ships are lost and he will soon be forced into giving Shylock his pound of flesh. He asks to see Bassanio before he dies.
How do you think Bassanio feels here?
What would you do if Antonio was your friend?
. How do you feel about Shylock now? Do you still like him? Or do you think he's a nasty piece of work?
. How do you feel about the Christians in the film?
As we watch some more...
Shylock is escorting Antonio to prison in chains.
I want you to read through the scene in pairs and then I want you to highlight evidence that shows Shylock as a villain.
Enfold of push
Do you think Shylock is a
Give a reason why.
Do you think he should?
Or do you think Antonio's been punished enough?
