How Does Portia Die?

Answer

In the Shakespeare play, Julius Caesar, Portia is one of the two substantial female roles. Her death was mentioned twice in the play. In Act 4, Scene 3, Brutus speaks to Cassius and tells him that Portia died by swallowing fire, or hot coals. As Brutus tells Cassius of her death, he follows the philosophy of stoicism and remains calm, then turns his attention to the war. The second time her death is mentioned, it is in the same scene by Massala.
