Storyboard Text

  • Portia, the Queen of Belmont. Marries Bassanio
  • The Casket plot in the Merchant of Venice was set up by Portia's dad to make sure that the person that married her loved her and didn't marry her for her wealth. The casket plot consisted of three rules. 1. If the person chose wrong they had to leave immediately, 2. The person couldn't tell anyone which casket they chose, and 3. If they chose wrong they had to promise not to marry.
  • Nerissa, Portia's servant and Lady-in-waiting
  • The Prince of Morocco, Portia's first suitor. Choses wrong casket.
  • The Prince of Arragon, Portia's Second suitor. Choses wrong casket.
  • Bassanio, a scholar and a soldier from Venice. Marries Portia.
  • Why do I have to follow this casket test? I cant choose who I like of even refuse who I dislike. I am restrained by the will of my dead father.
  • Yes i remember, Bassanio was his name. He out of all the men that my eyes have looked upon was the best deserving of a fair lady. I hope he comes and takes the test.
  • I know that, but none of the suitors who have arrived I have liked. They were all bad. Thank god none of them took the test.
  • Portia, your dad was always virtuous and had good inspirations. The casket test that he set up was made so that the person who chose the correct one chose you and that he would truly love you .
  • But my Lady, do not forget the young Venetian scholar and soldier that came during your father's time.
  • Oh man, what do we have here? A skull and a scroll! That is cold indeed. Well then, good bye warmness and welcome cold. Goodbye Portia, my heart is to grieved to give a formal leave. I shall part.
  • I will not ask anyone to marry me. Now I shall make my choice. What does the gold casket say, "Who chooseth me shall gain what many men desire'. Why that has to be Portia. The whole world desires her and every man in it. Never was such a rich gem (Portia) set in worse than gold. A coin in England is stamped in gold with the figure of an angle. I chose the gold casket.
  • You must take your chance, but remember, if you chose wrong who must swear to never marry. If you chose the correct casket it will have my picture in it.
  • Here is the golden key. If my picture is in there, then i am yours.
  • What's here? The portrait of a clown and a scroll. This is so different from my hopes and deserving's! Did I deserve nothing other than a clowns head. The longer I stay here, the bigger of a fool I will become. Goodbye. I will keep my oath.
  • I am prepared. Let's see, what does the silver casket say, "Who chooseth me shall get as much as he deserves'. Well said too. For who can go about cheating fortune and pretending to be noble when he cannot show that he is worthy. One that is noble and deserving could be sorted out from other people Just like I deserve Portia. Give me the key for the silver casket, and i will unlock my fortunes.
  • Here is the key.
  • There are the caskets. If you chose the one with my picture I am yours. But if you chose wrong you must leave immediately and never marry. Now make your choice.
  • What do I find? Fair Portia's counterfeit and a scroll! The painting seems so life like! This painting traps a man's heart like gnats are caught in a spider web. My praise of the portrait is inadequate and cannot say the true worth of it! It is the summary of my fortune!
  • I will find my fortune in the caskets. The outsides of the caskets may show something. For people are tricked by ornaments and beauty. Some things can be represented so well that the presentation covers the evil inside. It can hide the grossness with ornaments. there is no virtue on the outward parts. Many cowards may look upon the beauty of the casket and not think of what is inside. The most beautiful might be the most dangerous. I chose the leaden casket. Let the consequence be joy.
  • Please, wait and stay a few more days because if you chose wrong I lose your company. But if you must chose, go ahead. My picture is locked in one of them, if you love me, you will find it.
  • Let all other passions except happiness vanish into the air! Joy rain in moderation . I feel like I got to much of a blessing! Here is the key.
  • You have take all the words out of my mouth. My thoughts are confused, like a crowd of murmuring, happy citizens who have heard a speech from a much loved ruler. Everything id mixed up and nothing can be distinguished but joy. But when this ring parts from my finger, I part from life myself. Then it would be bold to say that Bassanio is dead.
  • Myself and everything that is mine is now converted to you. This house, these servants, and myself are all yours and i give them to you with this ring. When you part from this ring, let it be my opportunity t accuse you of cheating on me.
