I have taken an initial look at "The Merchant of Venice". It was clearly written as a Medici self-portrait. The implication is that if Emilia/Aemilia Bassano/Bossano did write or collaborate on this Shakespeare play or others, she did so NOT as a Jew but as a Medici.
I hope to post a commentary on this Shakespeare play as I did Midsummer Night's Dream.
