ABSTRACT
The article discusses the discrimination against Jews as seen in many novels of the nineteenth-century. In the novel "The Prime Minister," written by Anthony Trollope in 1876, a character named Ferdinand Lopez has been disqualified by a father named Warton to be the husband of her daughter because of his being a Jew. Madame Max, a character of his another novel, has also decided to deflect all interest in her identity as a Jew in order to marry a noble Britishman. However, it was William Shakespeare's Shylock who became an important image of a character of human consequence. Considering this thinking about Jews, it was allegedly clear that those authors of the 19th century informed their readers that the Jews do deserve their fate.
