LITERATURE IN ENGLISH ENGLISH Paper 2 II ANALYSIS OF PERFORMANCE SECTION A - DRAMA The Merchant of Venice: Shakespeare Question 1. Read the extract given below and answer the questions that follow: Portia: (i) ......But this reasoning is not in the fashion to choose me a husband. O me, the word choose ! I may neither choose whom I would, nor refuse whom I dislike; so is the will of a living daughter curbed by the will of a dead father. Is it not hard, Nerissa that I cannot choose one, nor refuse none? What test had Portia s father devised for her suitors? What oath did the suitors have to take before making their choice? [3] (ii) Who is Nerissa? What does she say to cheer up Portia? [3] (iii) Why does Portia disapprove of the County Palatine? Whom would she rather marry? (iv) [3] How, according to Portia, can the Duke of Saxony s nephew be made to choose the wrong casket? What do these suitors ultimately decide? Why? (v) [3] Whom does Portia ultimately marry? Who were the two other suitors who took the test? Why, in your opinion, is the person whom she marries worthy of her? 15 [4]
