Basically we are meant not to sympathize with Shylock because of his glee over Antonio's misfortune. Shylock wants his pound of flesh even more than his money back. He also wishes his daughter Jessica dead although I think this is simply the pain of her betrayal. He also laments that he wishes he could see her one more time.
