Shylock in Jerusalem

I’m pleased to announce the publication of my essay “Shylock in Jerusalem” in UMSL’s recently published Jewish literary anthology.

There are no accidents in Shakespeare.

Hardly a week passed without Professor Levin impressing upon us yet again this paramount lesson, and no one passed Professor Levin’s class without learning it well.  So learn it I did, but with no inkling of how its echo would reverberate beyond Shakespeare’s era by thousands of years, and beyond Shakespeare’s England by thousands of miles.

Read the whole essay here.
