Launcelot describes Shylock as the Jew, the Devil, and the Devil incarnate. He tells his father that Shylock is a "total Jew," and that he is starving him to death. Though toward the end of the scene we see that Shylock himself has alreay talked to Bassanio and recommended him for a job...... just what Launcelot was trying to accomplish all the time. Maybe Shylock isn't such a devil after all.
