Christianity, the New Testament, follows mercy and forgiveness. The Duke and Antonio both show mercy towards Shylock when he has shown none. Shakespeare first introduces Shylock in Act1: Scene3. With no stage directions we have to decipher what a character is like only through what they say. "Three thousand Ducats-well." His first line is about money. Shakespeare instantly gives us the impression that his only interest is money. This is also the case when he is at home with Jessica, his daughter and away from work.

He might even be suggesting that his mother's behavior is predictable or even boring. In the 3rd paragraph Philips innate selfishness discloses itself to the audience.

There are two hymns sung during the play, "The Lord is my shepherd" and "Abide by me" These hymns carry a message from the villagers to God. The meaning of this hymn is that the villagers are singing it because they are saying that God will look over them and look after them, just like a shepherd looks over his sheep and looks after him; God will do the same for them. This shows us how unaware the villagers are of how damaging the forthcoming war will be because at that moment, they believed that god would always look after them and that no harm would come to them.

(Sanders, 317). In this novel, Sterne broadens the possibilities of the novel form, and yet ..."unlike most novels, it is concerned explicitly with reminding us that there are things which you cannot expect a novel to do. The greatness of Sterne is that, with humour, and sensitivity, he insists all the time that novels cannot save us". (Ricks, 13) To begin my analysis, first I would like to look at how Sterne parodies the different narrative techniques. According to Jeffrey Williams the novel demonstrates an extraordinary form in novelistic sense due to the fact that the narrative of Tristram's autobiography and the history of the Shandy family are incomplete and intermitted.
