Character Analysis: All That Glisters Is Not Gold

Satisfactory Essays
Another reason why I agree with the quote is because of Act 2 scene 7. The setting was in Belmont in Portia’s house where Morocco (one of the prince) comes to choose his casket and claim his reward. “Hazard for lead! / This casket threatens: men that hazard all / Do it in hope of fair advantages” Morocco explains his thoughts on the lead casket, he prejudges the metal casket by calling it worthless and vulgar. The famous “All that glisters is not gold” is used in this scene as Morocco dramatically portrays his thoughts as a result of being fooled by the appearance of the casket considering thinking that all beautiful things are made of gold.
