Its influence was presented in the works wherein a knight promised his service to his lady which was similar to a servant’s obedience to his lord. Because of the increasing popularity of courtly love works, serving women became a highly admired practice for men. Feudalism became a template for most of the poets as their works promote values like obedience and loyalty to a higher authority which was often followed during that time.

Black feminism argues that sexism, class oppression and racism are interrelated factors that need to be overcome by black women and can also be defined as a process of self-conscious struggle that empowers women and men to actualize a humanist vision of community.

A shaded beginning to this could be when Antonio’s boats are lost and the interest is due. The inability of Shylock to collect that interest, thanks to the artful legal maneuvering of Portia, exposes him to an ultimate curse--the loss of reputation and wealth. However, the likely commencement of this prophecy is the loss of the blessing which Shylock is so proud of, he blames the Christians, since his converted daughter is the one who robs him. (Thrift is blessing, if daughters steal it not.)

The idea of narrating this incident is to share the outcome, the ‘full and final’ gist of this dangerous journey what I titled as Wrath Yatra.
