Having to choose the fate of another can be difficult. In the short story “The Lady Or The Tiger?” by Frank Stockton there is a lot of evidence supporting that the princess would choose the lady as the fate of her lover over the tiger. The daughter of the barbaric king fell in love with a man of a lower class, when the king finds out he expresses that it is unacceptable. The standard justice system at the time was to have a trial in the arena to decide if the defendant was guilty or innocent.

The short story, “The Lady or the Tiger?” by Frank R. Stockton illustrates a princess’s choice on whether she will send her lover to death or to the arms of another woman. The author excludes the ending and fate of the man, and instead, he leaves it to the reader to determine. After further analysis of the story, the reader can conclude that the princess chose the door with the tiger behind it. To begin, the princess must have chosen the door housing the tiger because she finds herself insanely jealous of the lady. The princess cannot stand the thought of the accused man choosing her as “this fair creature throw[s] glances of admiration upon the person of her lover.” She knows that the girl finds her lover attractive and, she infers that he could quite possibly return her affection as “she thought these glances were perceived, and even returned.” She cannot live knowing a woman beneath her ranking obtains her lover after all, and the damsel receives what she wanted while the princess suffers in sadness.
