Summary

There is no known source for Christopher Marlowe's play The Jew of Malta, but it makes copious allusions to the famous Turkish seize of Christian Malta in 1565 that forms the international setting for the main character, Barabas. It greatly influenced William Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice with its exploration of anti-Semitism and revenge.
