User Review  - Elizabeth - Goodreads

It's so difficult to rate this because it's disgustingly anti-semitic but also a really enjoyable and well-written play? I've given it 3 stars but it's really 5 stars for the writing and 0 stars for its treatment of Jewish people. Read full review

User Review  - Jay - Goodreads

The play is interesting from a historical, political, and symbolic perspective. The political interchanges, alliances and betrayals, between the three Abrahamic religions are worth note, as not much ... Read full review

User Review  - Ian Zimmerman - Goodreads

1 part melodrama and 1 part 16th century anti-semitism. This play could be viewed as the vastly inferior precursor to The Merchant of Venice. If you ever have the temptation to read this play, just ... Read full review
