Shakespeare's REAL Treatment of Jews, Women, Blacks, and Revenge


Below are the links to four lectures on Shakespeare called “Shakespeare’s Real Treatment of Jews, Women, Blacks, and Revenge” given in February-March 2014. 
 
Thanks to Alex, videographer, editor, and tech master;
to Ethan, second cameraman;
and to LJCDS for providing the venue.
 
My advice: read each play before listening to the lecture.
 

I.  The Merchant of Venice:  "Hath Not a Jew Eyes?"
