Teaching The Lady, or the Tiger?

The Lady, or the Tiger?

"The Lady, or the Tiger?" is a much-anthologized short story written by Frank R. Stockton for publication in the magazine The Century in 1882. "The Lady, or the Tiger?" has entered the English language as an allegorical expression, a shorthand indication or signifier, for a problem that is unsolvable. This story makes people think beyond the normal perceptions.
