The Jew of Malta Act 2, Scene 1 Summary

  • Barabas lurks outside a window of his house-turned-nunnery at night, being not at all creepy, and waiting for Abigail to toss down the riches he'd hidden inside.
  • She finds the gold and throws it down to her father.
  • Barabas is super happy about this, and cuddles his moneybags lovingly while babbling about "my girl, my gold, my fortune." Because that's a totally normal thing for a father to do.
  • Shakespeare time! Take a look at Act 2, Scene 8, lines 15-22 in The Merchant of Venice to see how this daughter-money confusion plays out there.
