Just like all other plays of Shakespeare it has many of antagonisms and it portrays the most important and hot conflicts that used to be popular at that time just as much as they are now. Exploring this multi dimensional play is exciting, because the more you think about it, the more hints and tints you discover. The play takes place in two main locations – Venice and Belmont. These two places portray two different lifestyles. One of the most important and essential themes of the Merchant of Venice is wealth.
At the start of the play Othello is well known and well-liked and respected by his soldiers and the citizens of Venice. The jealousy of Othello from Iargo is very intense. iargo uses his abilities to manipulate people to get up on Othello. He is jealous of othello being married to Desdemona. Jealousy is a strong emotion.
All his traits and characteristics are very deliberate. The character of Shylock is frequently used by Shakespeare to build sympathy from the audience, which he quickly removes again. This helps to keep the audience thinking about him and it helps to keep the audience interested in the plot. Shylock first appears as a cautious business man who lets us know how badly he has been treated by Antonio, but we become aware that there is also professional rivalry between the two. When we first hear of Jessica leaving, we are told by Solanio.
This conflict lends to its continued popularity because it reflects ordinary people’s desire for money and the confrontations that obtaining money often leads to in real life. In the play, almost every member, including Mama, Ruth, and Walter are headstrong in their decisions for how to most effectively spend the money.

The Rivals Love triangles are complicated and messy scenarios that are caused by the indecision of the person in the middle or the inability of the others to move on. The same is seen in The Merchant of Venice, in which Antonio and Portia fight for Bassanio. Throughout the play we see many bonds or connections between both Antonio and Bassanio as well as Portia and Bassanio. To many, the main plot may seem to be the conflict between Antonio and Shylock, when in reality it’s the love that Antonio and Portia have for Bassanio that leads to everything. The main plot is moved forward by the bonds the two have with Bassanio and the rivalry they have with each other.
In the end after Shylocks hard as nails look he turns out to have feelings like any other person.Although Antonio may seem mysterious, isolated and weary-dissilusional he cares a lot for his friendship with Bassanio and is willing to bite his tongue and ask the man he hates most for money all because of friendship. Money only became an issue because Shylock was Jewish & Antonio was a Christian, if there wasn't a difference in religion Antonio wouldn't be lending out money for
Generally, the three of them have very different characteristics but share one thing in common - prejudice. Both Antonio and Bassanio are loyal friends and Antonio “only loves the world for him” (Bassanio). On the other hand, essentially audience sympathy is turned away from Shylock by his hatred of Antonio (to the extent of murder) and his ruthless pursuit of profit, but his eloquent description of Antonio’s abusive language and behaviour redresses the balance a little in his favour. Nevertheless, “The Merchant of Venice” is an interesting play with a rich plot.
First of all, in the period that it was written, Venice was a wealthy city, full of commerce, which was a result of trade routes crossing straight through it. This creates an image of trading for the play, which is an apt name for the title, The Merchant Of Venice. Secondly, it could not be set in England as the Jews were a very controversial subject at the time and it would be very dangerous to write a play set in England about this subject. By setting it in Venice, it creates a distance between the audience and the play, while still relating to their lives. Shylock is a Jewish moneylender trying to make a living and survive in

Susan Heitler) “Communication in relationships is like a river. When thoughts and feelings flow smoothly between marriage partners it 's fun, feels good, and helps support everyone around. However, when communication flow is turbulent, it 's potentially dangerous and destructive. And when communication gets blocked, pressure builds up. Then when the words start flowing again, they tend to come out suddenly in a damaging raging flood” If you and your spouse do not communicate effectively, you are both likely to experience frustration, anger and resentment.
