    Related Text Suggestion with Merchant of Venice

    Hey guys our class is studying the Merchant of Venice and I’m in search of related texts! Since the prescribed is a play I would rather have a related that is a film/poem/novel etc... if anyone could give me any suggestions I would highly appreciate it because I have no idea what I’m doing rn. Need something deep and showy that works well with the ideas and themes in MoV that link to the human experience
    Thanks!
