#35  Portia’s Puzzle

Portia is the heroine of Shakespeare’s play, The Merchant of Venice. At the end of the play she appears as an extremely clever lawyer. This tale is adapted from near the beginning of the story – where her husband is chosen by an unusual test. As you will hear, it is rather like a fairytale.
