merchant of venice ACT 1 SCENE 2:- How does the young German behave when he hisdrunk and when he is sober?If the worse happens to Portia which would compel her to marry him, what would she do?
Portia dislikes the German when he is sober as he is rather ordinary and boring. She positively despises him when he is drunk. He reminds her of a sponge. He is 'little better than a beast'. Fortunately, he does not wish to try his luck in choosing from the three chests and Portia is safe! If she were forced to marry one of her unworthy suitors, she would obey her father's decree.
