The Merchant of Venice: Act 2.1

Characters
Portia, the Prince of Morocco


The gist
The Prince is the first to try the “casket lottery” – if he fails he will never be allowed to marry anyone. He must choose from a gold, a silver and a led casket.

Quotations

“…swear before you choose, if you choose wrong never to speak to lady afterward in way of marriage.”
