Transcript of The Taming of the Shrew

In this act, Katherine and Petruchio are married and are going to Baptista's house for Bianca's wedding. On their journey, they meet the real Vicentio and help him find his way to town. When the group gets to town, the fake Vicentio tries to have the real Vicentio put into prison for "pretending" do be somebody that he is not. At that moment, Lucentio walks in with Bianca he tells everyone his plan and goes to comfort the two men about what happened. Meanwhile, Kathrine has realized that she must do as Petruchio says because there will be consequences if she does not. The play ends by Katherine telling Bianca and the widow how to be good wives for their husbands, showing that Katherine, the shrew, has been tamed. The Taming of the Shrew Act 1 SUMMARY VOCABULARY QUOTES Act III Act II REAL LIFE EXAMPLE Act IV SUMMARY QUOTES REAL LIFE EXAMPLE VOCABULARY QUOTES REAL LIFE EXAMPLE Act V SUMMARY QUOTES REAL LIFE EXAMPLE VOCABULARY SUMMARY SUMMARY VOCABULARY VOCABULARY QUOTES REAL LIFE EXAMPLE Sever: (verb) to work for Gramercies: (noun) many thanks 'Larums: (noun) calls to arms, sudden attacks Sooth: (noun) truth Mewed: (adj) caged "Good sister, wrong me not nor wrong yourself,
To make a bondmaid and a slave of me.
That I disdain. But for these other goods—
Unbind my hands, I’ll pull them off myself,
Yea, all my raiment to my petticoat,
Or what you will command me will I do,
So well I know my duty to my elders"
(Act 2, Scene, 1). Bianca- This quote shows the relationship between Kate and Bianca. It shows how Bianca doesn't really like her sister, but tolerates her because Kate is older "Ay, to the proof, as mountains are
for winds, That shakes not, though they
blow perpetually"
(Act 2, Scene 1). Petruchio- This quote shows how
highly Petruchio thinks of himself. “Driven? Really? Well, let whoever
drove you here drive you
back again. I had you figured for a
piece of furniture"
(Act 2, Scene 1). Kate- This quote shows Kates
disgust with Petruchio. In act three, while Kate prepares for
her wedding, Lucentio and Hortensio
desguise themselves as teachers in an
attempt to get close to Bianca. The
supposed teachers battle to win time with
Bianca and hopefully her hand in
marrige, too. This act ends with Kate
and Petruchio's wedding. The wedding is
a disaster; Petruchio shows up in awful
clothes and embaresses Kate in front of
everyone. After the wedding, Kate and
Petruchio get in a fight and Petruchio
leaves. A real life example for Act IV is Amanda Bynes in the movie What a Girl Wants. Everyone wants Daphne(Amanda Bynes) to be more proper and live a sophisticated life, but she is not that type of girl. She does not want to change until she realizes it would help her dad's career as a politician if she behaved with more grace. A real life example for this act is the story of the ugly
duckling. When the duckling is born, no one likes him
just like no one likes Kate. In the end of both stories,
Kate and the ugly duckling transform into
swans that everyone is jealous of. Hortensio: "I can, Petruchio, help thee to a wife with wealth enough and young and beauteous. Her only fault is that she is intolerbale curst and shrewd and froward" (Act I, Scene 2). Hortensio: "Offer me to old Baptista as a schoolmaster well seen in music, to instruct Bianca, so I many court her by herself" (Act I, Scene 2). Pertruchio: "The youngest daughter, whom you hearken for, her father keeps from all access of suitors and will not promise her to any man until the elder sister first be wed" (Act I, Scene 2). The first sentence of this quotation describes what Petruchio is looking for in a wife. The second sentence describes the way Kate is viewed by the people of Padua. In the beginning of act II, Kate ties Bianca's hands together and forces her to tell which is her favorite suitor. Petruchio, Hortensio (Litio), Gremio, Lucentio (Cambio), Tranio (Lucentio), and Biondello visit Baptista. Petruchio immediately asks to see Kate while the other men attend to Bianca. It is agreed that Kate and Petruchio will marry the following Sunday. Tranio and Gremio talk to Baptista about who Bianca shall be married to. It is decided that the man with greater wealth will be her husband. This quote displays Hortensio's desire for Bianca. He wants Bianca so badly that he disguises himself so that he can spend time with her. This quote illustrates the problem Bianca faces because her sister undesirbale to men.

Eventually, Petruchio arrives to marry Kate. Similarly, Juliet is sad because Romeo has not come to marry her. But, when Romeo finally arrives, he asks Juliet to marry him.

Suffer Me: tolerate me In the movie, 10 Things I Hate About You,
Cameron and Joey decide that they would
do anything to be with Bianca. Unfortunately, they
cannot date Bianca unless her older sister,
Kat, dates someone as well. So, they need
a way for Kat to date so that they can date Bianca.
This is similar to Gremio, Hortensio, and Lucentio
who cannot marry Bianca until Kathrine is married. Tranio:
"Upon my life Petrucio means but well,
whatever fortune says him from his word.
Though he be blunt, I know him passing wise;
Though he be merry, yet withal he's honest"
(Act III, Scene 2). This quote says that although
Petrucio can be rude and very blunt
everything he says is sincere and
he means what he says. Baptista:
"First we were sad, fearing you would not
come, now sadder that you come so
unprovided" (Act III, Scene 2). Bianca:
"That being mad herself, she is madly mated" (Act III, Scene 2). This quote shows how Bianca feels
about her sisters marriage. She
believes that it is well matched
becuse Petruchio is just as mad
as Katherine. This quote illustrates everyone's fear on Katherine's wedding day. No one knew where Petruchio was and then when he showed up, he did not come to the wedding looking his best. Lucentio arrives in Padua with his servant, Tanio. Lucentio is a wealthy man who was eduacted in Pisa and Florence and has come to Padua to continue his eduaction at a famous university. Baptisa enters with his two daughters, Katherine and Bianca, along with Bianca's suitors, Hortensio and Gremio. Lucentio sees Bianca, falls in love with her, and wants to marry her but, Baptisa will not allow him to marry Bianca until his older daughter, Katherine, is married. Lucentio, in order to get close to Bianca, pretends to be Cambio, a language tutor. Breech: (noun)- trousers ending near the knee. Beguile: (verb) decieve, to while away In this act, Petruchio and Kate start living together as a married couple. While they are living together, Petruchio uses many methods to make Kate a tolerable wife. Tranio trys to find a man that can pretend to be Lucentio's father so that the marriage between Lucentio and Bianca can be approved. When Tranio sees a merchant coming into town from Manua he tells the merchant that he is in Padua illegally. Tranio gets the merchant to pretend to be Vicentio, Lucentio's father. The merchant is taken to Baptista to sign for the marriage. The act ends with the real Vicentio coming into town to see how Lucentio is doing. The truth about everyone's disguises is revealed. Heed: (verb) to pay attention Pry: (verb) to look closley or inquisitively Thrice: (adverb) three times, in a threefold manner The fairytale, Cinderella, sets an example of Kate and Bianca's fight in act II. Cinderella has conflicts with her step-sisters because they are so jealous of her. Therefore, Kate is portrayed by the step-sisters because she is jealous that Bianca has so many suitors. Bianca is portrayed by Cinderella because Bianca does not fight back to Kate in the same way Cinderella does not fight back with her step-sisters. Cinderella is also favored by her father the same way Bianca is favored by Baptista. Petruchio: "This is a way to kill a wife with kindness, and thus I'll curb her mad and headstrong humor, he that knows better how to tame a shrew, now let him speak-'tis charity to shrew"{ (Act 4, Scene 1). Tranio: " Signior Hortensio, I have often heard of your entire affection to Bianca, and since mine eyes are witness of her lightness, forswear Bianca and her love forever" (Act 4 Scene 2). Tranio: "If he creduluos and trust my tale, I'll make him glad to seem Vicentio, and give assurance to Baptista Minola as if he were the right Vicentio. Take in your love and then let me alone" (Act 4 Scene 2). This quote is important because it shows that Petruchio cares for Kate and that he is taming her for her benefit. This quote shows that Tranio is eliminating the competition so that Lucentio can have Bianca. This quote shows Lucentio and Tranio's plan to trick Baptista into believing a merchant is Vincentio. Kate: "Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper, thy head, thy sovereign, one that cares for thee, and for thy maintenance commits his body to painful labour both by sea and land" (Act V, Scene 2). When Kate says this, it shows that her prespective on marrige has changed and that she is finally tamed. Kate: "They are bound to serve, love and obey" (Act V, Scene 2). Kate is implying that women are less than men and are meant to be servants to their husbands. Petruchio: "Why, there's a wench! Come on and kiss me, Kate" (Act V, Scene 2). Petruchio is commanding Kate to kiss him after he won the bet against Hortensio and Lucentio.
