In romantic comedy we expect the plots of the wicked to be thwarted and good fortune to go to the deserving; and from one perspective, such 'poetic justice' is just what The Merchant of Venice gives us. But at whose expense? We will look closely at a play which pushes the comic form to its limits to disturb moral complacency and show that "all that glisters is not gold".
