“Portia is the heroine of William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, a rich, beautiful, very intelligent heiress. She disguises herself as Balthasar, a young doctor of law, whereby she saves the life of Bassanio’s friend, Antonio, in court.
Portia is one of the most prominent of Shakespeare’s heroines in his mature romantic comedies. She is beautiful, gracious, rich, intelligent, quick witted and with high standards in men. In the court scenes, Portia finds a technicality in the bond, thereby outwitting Shylock and saving Antonio’s life when everyone else fails.”
