Shylock, a Jewish moneylender, lends some money to Antonio who lends it to his friend, Bassanio, who needs it to travel to and court his love, Portia. But Shylock doesn’t like Antonio, who berated him for practicing usury, so Shylock proposes this deal: if Antonio is not able to pay back the loan, the merchant must give Shylock a pound of his own flesh.
