The Lady or The Tiger?


I don't know if I would admire Frank Stockton for making such an open-ended short story or if I would feel disappointed towards him for hanging his readers like me at the end of the story.

I was intrigued by its summary from www.eastoftheweb.com:
A semi-barbaric king devises a semi-barabaric (but entirely fair) method of criminal trial involving two doors, a beautiful lady and a very hungry tiger.

I read it. And, there! Argh! Better find it out yourself. Just click on the image to see the full story.
