with all my heart, I shall obey you in all fair commands.



I’m Lorenzo, and am in love with a beautiful Jewish girl called Jessica. We knew her father, Shylock, would not let her marry a Christian, so we decided to run away together and get married. Jessica stole some of her father’s money and used it to help us start a new life. Shylock already disliked Christians, so I’m sure this didn’t help. He was also angry with my friend Antonio for not paying back the money he owed. Luckily, when Shylock took Antonio to court for the money, Shylock lost the case. The court decided that Shylock must leave all his money to me and Jessica when he dies.

Loves Jessica



Dear Agony Aunt

I am madly in love with Jessica. Her father won’t let me marry her though, because I am a Christian and they are Jewish. Should I ask her to run away with me?
