Visions of Venice

Vincenzo Di Nicola
The list author says: "Whether it is La Biennale di Venezia, Shakespeare's anti-semitic hatefest, 'The Merchant of Venice' or his only slightly less offensive 'Othello,' Thomas Mann's 'Death in Venice' or Daphne du Maurier's 'Don't Look Back,' Venice holds sway over us in mystical, ambiguous ways."

Dead Lagoon
"Aurelio Zen returns to his native Venice to investigate the disappearance of a rich American resident but soon sees that, amid the hazy light & shifting waters of the lagoon, nothing is what it seems. As Zen is drawn into the mysteries of the discovery of a skeletal corpse on an ossuary island in the north lagoon, he confronts disturbing revelations about his own life."

Don't Look Now: Selected Stories of Daphne du Maurier (New York Review Books Classics)
"'Don't Look Now is a stunning collection of du Maurier's particular brand of intricately plotted story. The mesmerizing title story was faithfully adapted by Nicholas Roeg, and the volume also includes the creepily riveting tale "The Birds,"... filmed by Alfred Hitchcock.'--The Atlantic"
Don't Look Now
Don't Look Now
"Working with elements of the traditional horror genre & a cinematography of disquieting beauty & dreamlike sense of dislocation, Nicolas Roeg weaves a fabric of anxiety that questions all reality. The evocative use of the back streets of Venice is a sinister participant in the action. This intensely erotic & macabre film boasts outstanding performances by Julie Christie & Donald Sutherland."

The Merchant of Venice (Norton Critical Editions)
The Merchant of Venice (Norton Critical Editions)
"An anti-semitic wholesale hatefest by Shakespeare. If I could avoid getting arrested, I'd piss on Shakespeare's grave for this! If indeed the miscreant is buried there under that name."
Othello (Norton Critical Editions)
Othello (Norton Critical Editions)
"Othello, The Moor of Venice - only slightly less offensive than the anti-semitic hatefest 'Merchant of Venice' - 'Even now a black ram is tupping your white ewe.'"
