Comment:        SHK 11.0757 Merchant Wedding

>A colleague of mine has just finished teaching Merchant of Venice to her

>Portia and Bassanio take place?

There is an interesting essay in John Sutherland and Cedric Watts' Henry
V, War Criminal? (Oxford, 2000), 'Is Portia a virgin at the end of the
play - and will she stay one?' which investigates all the circumstances
of the marriage of Portia and Bassanio.
