As part of my research into Shylock, I have been looking at depictions of Jews in English Literature. This is an illustration that I found in the National Theatre's 1970 programme for The Merchant of Venice that deeply touched and moved me. It depicts Fagin in the condemned cell, from 'The Adventures of Oliver Twist' by Charles Dickens. The illustration is by George Cruikshank.
