Taming of the Shrew, had a great story line, which can be related to several movies that exist today i.e. Othello, 10 Things I Hate about You, and The Lion King. In William Shakespeare's play, The Taming of the Shrew, the shrew played by Katherine, had a terrible perspective on life and just about everything else. Her negativity was caused by her younger, more pulchritudinous sister Bianca. Bianca wanted to get espoused. She had all of the men's hearts, Katherine retained none. If Katherine got espoused then Bianca could get espoused. She authentically was a shrew who needed to be tamed. Petruchio came to Padua. Petruchio could tame Katherine for the right amount of mazuma. Before Petruchio's advent, Katherine, the terrible, feral shrew, caused quandaries with everyone. All that kenned her execrated her. She felt very jealous of her pulchritudinous sister Bianca, because of her suitors and her resplendency. Katherine endeavors to commence fights with Bianca all of the time. She even hit Bianca. No one wanted to espouse Katherine until Petruchio arrives in Padua to find a wife. "I come to wives it affluent in Padua; if affluent, then ecstatically in Padua" (ShakespeareIii76-77). He and one of Bianca's suitors, Luciento had a conversation. As a jape, Luciento mentioned to Petruchio espouse Katherine. Petruchio thought of the profit and thought it could be great. "Petruchio can have no illusions about the fabled shrew, Katherine, for others are expeditious to tell him quite frankly what to expect"(Vaughn27). Petruchio and Katherine's father meet and decide that Petruchio will get twenty-thousand crowns if he weds Katherine. Petruchio and Katherine meet, but they do not start off on the best of terms. But Petruchio decides they should... ... middle of paper ... ...io calls for Kate she arrives, exhibiting that she has become obedient. "Kate's final verbalization chastising Bianca and the widow for their disobedience and cataloguing their obligations that a wife owes her husband engenders a different moment on the stage today"(Vaughn30). This shows that Katherine has been tamed and no longer acts as a shrew. Bianca has an outburst which proves Bianca to be genuinely the shrew. "Is a wonder, by your leave, she will be tamed so" (ShakespeareVii214-215). Now everyone kens the authentic Katherine. The consequentiality of the vicissitude in Katherine's deportment at the cessation of the play proves to be very paramount. It shows that people can transmute. It also shows that certain people can bring out the best in some folk. In this case Petruchio brought out the best in Katherine after taming her and making her a complying wife.
