Rth very necessary very important but doesn t turn things aroundTwo other writers I ve read who deal specifically with Shylock are Philip Roth in Operation Shylock A This is an intelligent informed and brilliantly written engagement with Merchant it approaches the play thematically rather than strictly ollowing 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 Jacobson s writing is wonderful sometimes sparkling sometimes diamond hard and vicious What he has done here is to bring the humour back to the story something that has become increasingly difficult in relation to the original play or post Holocaust generations though contemporary Israeli theatre companies have done a HVAC Design Sourcebook fine job with this issue His take is acutely informed by modern scholarship but it s done in a subtle and unobtrusive way I especially liked the moments when Shylock is interrogated about his intentions in the play a nice way of hooking this back to the original while still maintaining a critical distance This is myirst Jacobson and I loved loved his affinity with language the way he

commissioned modern writers with the task of creating a contemporary retelling of some of Shakespeare s most captivating plays Here we have English writer Howard Jacobson exploring a new twist to The

not sure if this was aigment of Strulovich s imagination but NO Howard Jacobson IS THAT COOL Through absurdist artistic license and some magic realism slight of hand Shylock living and breathing

recent novels and liked them all well enough He s certainly your go to author if you want a witty discussion of the modern Jewish persecution Complex I Think The Problem With This I think the problem with this was that I wasn t sure what it wanted to be a contemporary Jewish novel or a Hebrew An Elusive Victorian fable or some mixture thereof Shylock is pretty much dropped in as isrom The Merchant of Venice so it s unclear whether he s Strulovitch s hallucination though others also seem to see him or a time traveler or what The exasperated A Bird in the House father characters are well drawn but theirlighty daughters less so I just got to a point where I didn t care at all what happened next which to me was the sign to give up and move #on to something elseI must say I m pretty disappointed so ar with the Hogarth Shakespeare updates Jeanette Winterson #to something elseI must say I m pretty disappointed so ar with the Hogarth Shakespeare updates Jeanette Winterson The Gap of Time was alright in places but not all that compelling I have an advanced copy of Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler on my Kindle though so I m willing to keep trying the series I ve never read The Merchant of Venice and am only basically The Last Imaginary Place familiar with the storyline of The Taming of the Shrew I saw one production but it was about 12 years ago so it will be interesting to see whether knowledge of the play enhances my appreciation or vice versa Edit 28 February I m dropping this rating down to one star because I m still angry at itShylock Is My Name is Howard Jacobson s addition to the Hogarth Shakespeare series and Ielt it to be such a let down after reading Jeanette Winterson s The Gap of Time I read Jacobson s J last year and was disappointed in it in similar ways as I am disappointed in this one While he can write Jacobson is very disjointed in his writing as if he is showing off to us plebs how smart how intelligent how verbose how white how upper class and in this case how Jewish he is and therefore how much better he is than the rest of us I can t help but wonder if this is one of those books that are written Not Just Roommates for men about men and by men Assion concerned still with uestions of identity parenthood anti Semitism and revenge While Strulovich struggles to reconcile himself to his daughter Beatrice's “betrayal” of heramily and heritage – as she is carried away by the excitement of Manchester high society and into the arms of a Cassidy Harte and the Comeback Kid (Outlaw Hartes, footballer notoriousor giving a Nazi salute on the ield – Shylock alternates grief or his beloved wife with rage against his own daughter's rejection of her Jewish upbringing Firstly I am VERY glad I listened to Shylock Is My Name on audio The narrator was very English very nicely spoken and gave emphasis to all the right words He helped me stay on track whereas left to myself I probably would have read too Vintage Games fast and lost the meaningThe meaning was deep the prose very literary and at times it was very heavy However there were also times that made me smile and there were some very beautiful passages Of course n Great book eually thought provoking challenging and entertaining It certainly helps if you have at least someamiliarity and understanding of Shakespeare s The Merchant of Venice and I suspect those of us who don t might be ind this book somewhat perplexing to say the least Whilst I am no expert having seen MOV several times certainly helped me to understand and get the most out of this bookWhilst I do agree with some reviewers that the Strulovich Shylock passages are stronger than those concerning Plurabell D Anton the difference is however by no means as marked as some reviewers would have it I am a great lover of the plays of Shakespeare watching not reading them and certainly agree with some reviewers that this book enhances broadens and deepens understanding and appreciation of the original play as well as the character and possible motivations of ShylockMy advice is to go and see the play brilliant although troubling and challenging as it may be to a contemporary audience at least once and then read the Jacobson book definitely not the other way round This book really made me laugh I don t often laugh out loud at books especially not on a plane surrounded by strangers But I did while reading thisI have read reviews that complain of Jacobson showing off in this book that seem to think it is just about the author showing how well he thinks he can write and how clever he is I didn t get any of that as I read it But I did laugh a lotIt might help that I am British and there s an element of the traditional English arce It might help that the action takes place about 5 miles away The Erotic Motive in Literature from where I grew up so I can picture the scenery etc But it made me laughI read the original just before I read this Now I am in a trap I might never escape this novel made me want to re visit the play as I think I will get out of the Shakespeare version having read the Jacobson version But I amairly convinced that re reading the play would make me want to re read the book which would make me want to go back to the play which wouldDid I mention it made me laugh Shylock 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 The Detour further I read the Iell 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 When I Was *confused when was 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 Shylock s story with wanting his bond and all that occurs in The Merchant of Venice has already happened Instead of Shylock s story we are getting Strulovitch s which cleverly twists to run parallels with Shylock s old story It was incredibly well done and I loved seeing the similarities in the retelling This one also heavily The Crime Trade (Tina Boyd focuses on the theme of discrimination religion and religious culture Especially Judaism seeing as the original play is based around this I know that theocus being on this will put off some readers but seeing as I haven t read many books about Judaism it intrigued me all the I learned some things and it made me think of some others You could easily replace the word Jew here with other culture titles or religions and you might even get a similar story It s amazing how well this relates to some issues present day but to see that you ll have to do some of your own analysing I also liked that Shylock and Strulovitch were both The Adventures of Rusty fathers who had to raise their children aloneor whatever reason It s interesting to the different approaches they take although they both are landing in the extreme D Anton was another character I liked

He Seemed To Simply Want 
seemed to simply want play the ather to everyone and be of help But sometimes it put him in difficult situations and it was so sad to see how events unfolded around him Without knowing what there was there was uite a bit of rising suspense The outcome wasn t a mind blowing plot twist but it wasn t what I predicted either The best way or me to describe this book would be as pleasantly surprising A gentle read but one that rested heavily on my mind I d recommend it and look Mamá forward to the next book of its nature This review and others can beound on Olivia s Catastrophe This is a book I ve wanted to read or a long time although I didn t realize it was part of the Hogarth Shakespeare project to commission modern novelists to retell ShakespeareHoward Jacobson has plucked orth Shylock breathed new life into him and given him another turn upon the stage including a chance to Fearless (Nashville Nights, finish unfinished business in Act Five In this book he appears in chilly England to help and support Simon Strulovitch whoinds himself stuck in a dilemma similar to Shylock s in A Merchant of Venice Don t get mad get even an idiom not a uote not in the sense of a pound of The Bomber Dog flesh no way but just turning things the other way around That s what happens here Most work on antisemitic stereotypes and thinking involves exploring and setting ito. Man Booker Prize winner Howard Jacobson brings his singular brilliance to this modern re imagining of one of Shakespeare’s most unforgettable characters Shylock Winter a cemetery Shylock In this provocative and profound interpretation of “The Merchant of Venice” Shylock is juxtaposed against his present day counterpart in the character of art dealer and conflicted ather Simon Strulovitch With characteristic irony Jacobson presents Shylock as a man of incisive wit and Shylock is my Name
