All the characters in the play are listed here:


With their names, you get a one line summary of their role in the play. This includes the minor characters, and you can use this as a kind of checklist for your project.

And finally, an analysis of the major characters is available as well. This would be Portia, Antonio, Shylock, and Bassanio.
