Notes on Portia and Nerissa
First up, a very warm welcome to everyone who has followed Zounds since it appeared on Freshly Pressed, and thank you for all the support. Hope you all enjoy the cartoons to come.
But to this week’s cartoon, and The Merchant of Venice, in which Portia makes the case that
cross-dressing really is the answer to everything. Who knew that as well as the famous gold, silver and lead caskets, Portia also had a fourth made of pure manliness?
Fortunately, they had a whole journey from Belmont to Venice to come up with a real plan.
