The Merchant of venice; William Shakespeare

KShs1,250.00

In The Merchant of Venice, the path to marriage is hazardous. To win Portia, Bassanio must pass a test prescribed by her father’s will, choosing correctly among three caskets or chests. If he fails, he may never marry at all.

Bassanio and Portia also face a magnificent villain, the moneylender Shylock. In creating Shylock, Shakespeare seems to have shared in a widespread prejudice against Jews. Shylock would have been regarded as a villain because he was a Jew. Yet he gives such powerful expression to his alienation due to the hatred around him that, in many productions, he emerges as the hero.

Portia is most remembered for her disguise as a lawyer, Balthazar, especially the speech in which she urges Shylock to show mercy that “droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven.”

    This little book of mine talks of how sometimes, we as humans, find ourselves holding onto people or moments that truly anchor us down. Sometimes we search for the tiniest bits of beauty because we don’t want to see the bad. Sometimes our minds paint pictures of what they could be, of what could be, of what life could be if one little thing was different. One, little thing. The unhealthy relationship. The toxic soul tie. Only if they could change, then we would be the perfect couple. So we stick through it all. Through the harsh words, the jabs in the heart, the betrayal, the cheating, the mentally and emotionally abuses, we stick in the hopes of them changing. But they never do!! They never will!

    Let me remind you, while you’re praying for someone who mistreats you to change their behavior, you are someone else’s prayer. We need to learn, to shift that energy from those we know don’t deserve us. Wish them well, thank them for the lessons, and unpack our souls in spaces that celebrate us.

    In this book, I place my story in writing and if you would love to read these words, that I’m hoping would reflect your story and touch your hearts.

  • Born a Crime is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It is also the story of that young man’s relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother: his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life.

    The eighteen personal essays collected here are by turns hilarious, dramatic, and deeply affecting. Whether subsisting on caterpillars for dinner during hard times, being thrown from a moving car during an attempted kidnapping, or just trying to survive the life-and-death pitfalls of dating in high school, Trevor illuminates his curious world with an incisive wit and unflinching honesty. His stories weave together to form a moving and searingly funny portrait of a boy making his way through a damaged world in a dangerous time, armed only with a keen sense of humor and a mother’s unconventional, unconditional love.

  • Set in present-day Africa (Kenya?), this book is about your average whorehouse, though the name over the door says “Bar and Grill.”

    The first ten “employees” who show up to the whorehouse for work each afternoon (it’s open all night) get the opportunity to pole dance to make some extra money. The rest have to hustle whatever they can from whatever customers come that night.

    In this book, there is a suicide (or is it?), there is a murder (plus burying the body), and there is a catfight, with blood, between two of the women over the attention of Ngazi, the owner (a very unpleasant person). Ngazi attempts to rekindle his relationship with Teresa, his estranged wife. Ultimately, things do not end well.

    Widely respected and admired, Philip Fisher is among the most influential investors of all time. His investment philosophies, introduced almost forty years ago, are not only studied and applied by today’s financiers and investors, but are also regarded by many as gospel. This book is invaluable reading and has been since it was first published in 1958. The updated paperback retains the investment wisdom of the original edition and includes the perspectives of the author’s son Ken Fisher, an investment guru in his own right in an expanded preface and introduction

    “I sought out Phil Fisher after reading his Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits…A thorough understanding of the business, obtained by using Phil’s techniques…enables one to make intelligent investment commitments.”
    Warren Buffet
