Oxford Literary Review 34 (1):71-87 (2012)

Following on from Derrida's reading of The Merchant of Venice, Act 4, scene 1, this essay bids to make some headway against all the currents of kind and kindness bound up in the deal between Antonio and Shylock. What kind of play is this? What is the play of kind? Who is kind? What kind of future is waiting to be born? These and other kinds of questions are hauled up by the net cast into Shakespeare's teeming language.
