Transcript of The Effectiveness of Different Media: The Taming of the Shre

The Effectiveness of Different Media: The Taming of the Shrew and 10 Things I Hate About You
Mmuoma Iromuanya
Differences between William Shakespeare and Director Gil Junger
The effect of those differences on the outcome of the play and film
Plot summary
Major differences
10 Things I Hate About You effectively transforms the extremely sexist play The Taming of The Shrew into a seemingly opposite film, and in effect, more effectively appeals to the modern teenage audience than the play. Although the film effectively appeals to the modern teenage audience through what seems like equality between the different genders by masking that it is indeed also sexist, it is not effective in provoking the audience to question gender roles and instead encourages them to accept them; However, The Taming of the Shrew, albeit clearly sexist, blatantly and effectively presents gender roles and the audience a chance to question it.

Effects on audience
Effectiveness of characterization
Similarity in Plot
"...it [10 Things] effectively conceals how similar it is to The Taming in its non-feminist implications. For instance, Pittman points out that 10 Things 'still keeps the theme of using a strong man to conform a free-spirited woman to society's norm' and that females in both stories are 'described in ways that assert the socially constructed categories for identity' Kat as the rebel and Bianca as the 'girlie' girl, and their Shakespearian counterparts as the same."
10 Things simply hides the obvious gender stereotypes that come into play through romance and comedy
10 Things does not set gender roles up to be "deconstructed and examined" like Shakespeare does in The Taming
In The Taming, the characterization of the characters is blatant and easily analyzed and criticized
Characters in 10 Things are typified as the typical teenagers in modern society, whose implied characteristics are to be accepted rather than questioned
"Junger uses 10 Things to effectively appropriate the obvious sexism in The Taming for the modern audience in order to appeal to them in the same way that Shakespeare adapts his play to appeal to the patriarchal society he lived in."
