Hey! I uploaded a bunch of notes about TMOV on the website, They are in VIC English, Year 10.

I also have a thread about it here.

The main themes are:
- Revenge
- Mercy
- Antisemitism/Prejudice (who is the real victim)
- Role of Women
- Perceptions
- Wealth
- Relationships (love/self interest)

I also made a quizlet with some quotes.

Some important ones are:
REVENGE
“A goodly apple rotten at the heart.”
“I will feed the fat ancient grudge I bear him.”
“The badge of our tribe.”
“The villainy you teach me I will execute.”
“Tis’ mine and I will have it.”
“The quality of mercy is not strained.”

ROLE OF WOMEN
“Double six thousand, and then treble that.”
“The quality of mercy is not strained.”

IMPRESSIONS
“All that glisters is not gold.”

WEALTH
“O my ducats, O my daughter.”
“My purse, my person, my extremest means, Lie all unlocked to your occasion.”
“In Belmont is a lady richly left.”
“I have disabled mine estate.”
“Our house is hell.”
