My teacher says it likely to come up the scene where I have to decide between the caskets and how tension builds up tension and so on.
By the way I'm a bit scared because I dont really know much about unimportant characters such as sallarino or lorenzo and if they come up you should probably mention them.. Do you feel the same way?

yeah i get you, (lol i like your username!) and i don't think salerio and solanio will come up, but if you feel anxious then you can try and see stuff like sparknotes or something? off the top of my head, a few interesting things my teacher said about lorenzo to note are:
- he talks about jessica and how much he loves her in the beginning but never really says it to her
- he takes himself quite seriously (in scene with lancelot and jessica) and can be quite unhumorous
- some may say he sucks up to portia -- good words to use: (obsequious/sycophantic)

that's all i got sorry, and in the scene with bassanio there aren't rly many techniques tho?

yeah i said the free indirect speech, dialogue and the physical descriptions of silas 'his face flushed' made it disturbing i feel like mine was quite short tho. good luck today guys lets hope the extract is kind to us!
