Transcript of The Merchant of Venice

The Merchant of Venice JESSICA
I am sorry thou wilt leave my father so.
Our house is hell, and thou, a merry devil,
Didst rob it of some taste of tediousness.
But fare thee well, there is a ducat for thee.
And Launcelot, soon at supper shalt thou see
Lorenzo, who is thy new master’s guest.
Give him this letter.
Do it secretly.
And so farewell. I would not have my father
See me in talk with thee. LAUNCELOT
Adieu! Tears exhibit my tongue. Most beautiful pagan, most sweet Jew! If a Christian do not play the knave and get thee, I am much deceived. But adieu. These foolish drops do something drown my manly spirit. Adieu. JESSICA
Farewell, good Launcelot.

Alack, what heinous sin is it in me
To be ashamed to be my father’s child!
But though I am a daughter to his blood,
I am not to his manners. O Lorenzo,
If thou keep promise, I shall end this strife,
Become a Christian and thy loving wife. Shakespeare vs. Modern Day Jessica apologizes for the way her father has acted and for the trouble Launcelot has been through. She tells him that even though her house is hell, he always brightens up her day. Then Jessica gives Launcelot a ducat (gold coin) and a letter to give to Lorenzo. She asks Launcelot to give it to Lorenzo in secret. She says her final good-bye and tells him to leave before her father sees her talking to him. Launcelot starts to cry as he says good-bye. Then he tells her that a christian will trick her to make her fall in love. One more good-bye and he leaves. By: Celeste & Jessica Act 2 Scene 3 Jessica says to herself, Oh God, I am a sinner, being ashamed to be my father’s child! I need to remember I’m related to him by blood, not behavior. Oh Lorenzo, if you keep your promise to me, I’ll end this agony by becoming a Christian and marrying you. Plot Advancements Literary Devices Character Development JESSICA

Act-2 scene-3 lines-2,14 In this sceb In this scene we learn that Jessica doesn't like the ways of her father and is ashamed to be his daughter. We learn that she cares for the servants and trys to help them. Jessica is strong willed and goes against her father's wishes. We find out that Jessica has lots of secrets, including her love for Lorenzo. In spite of her father, Jessica makes friendships with the servants and uses Launcelot to send messages to Lorenzo. In the scenes before Launcelot is a servant of Shylock. Shylock is a very mean man and treats his servants unkindly. Launcelot is sick and tired of Shylock's unhuman behavior and has decided that he will no longer put up with his cruelty. Launcelot has asked Bassanio if he could work for him and Bassanio agreed.

In this scene Launcelot is talking to Jessica (Shylock's Daughter). Jessica is much kinder and more appreciative of his work. Jessica doesn't like her father and understands the reasons why Launcelot would want to leave her home. Jessica gives Launcelot a ducat and says good-bye to him. Then she askes him if he would give a letter to Lorenzo when he meets him at dinner at Bassanio. Launcelot starts to cry when he says good-bye and tells Jessica that she will find a good christain man. After Launcelot leaves Jessica's house, Jessica says to herself she dilikes her father and imagines one day she will become christain and marry Lorenzo. The End
