Merchant of Venice Project

I chose selfishness because it is shown a lot in the movie. Some examples are when Shylock won't let Antonio go and just except the money. Hey just wants to kill him and won't let him go.
Another example is when the French man is choosing his casket and he chooses the one that says "if you marry me you will get to keep all you have" and he chooses that one because he wants to marry her and be selfish and keep all of his wealth.
Modern day society
Selfishness is shown through out modern day because people are becoming so focused on their wealth and not other people or family members. People just only focus on there self and not other people.
