main character in Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice

Fishburn and Hughes: The Jewish usurer in Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, a character who has been interpreted in many different ways. The history of Shylock as set out in the fictional Rosencrantz Speaks with the Angel is obviously apocryphal. There is, however, a long list of speculations about Shylock’s origins. Among these figure an early ballad entitled Ser Gernutus the Jew, an English version of the Italian play Il Pecorone, the Persian story of the 'Seven Wise Masters of Rome' from the Sinbad series, an English version of the Gesta Romanorum (c.1472) and the state trial of Rodrigo Lopez, Queen Elizabeth's Jewish physician.
