Though classified as a comedy in the First Folio and sharing certain aspects with Shakespeare's other romantic comedies, "The Merchant of Venice" is perhaps most remembered for its dramatic scenes, and is best known for Shylock and the famous "Hath not a Jew eyes?" speech.

I have read the story of golden fleece..... And I also like it's lead character Jason.
for some reason I like Bassanio, maybe, it's because I saw one of my favorite actors (Kris Marshall) play him.
Shylock is such an interesting character, it's neat to see the way other people play him. Sometimes they make him seem evil, other times they make the audience feel sorry for him. (I tend to feel sorry for him...but to extent.)
I love that his name is Launcelot it reminds me of Sir Lancelot.
