    2. Oh well, Shakespeare What do you expect me to make of this, Sir Me, being a Kate, but not starved, tortured, and humiliated into obedience, submission, complete surrender How shall I read this play, that made me literally feel a knot in my stomach, that filled me with nausea, anger, and sadness My first reaction was to think Thank you, Sir, that s enough I ll have none of this any, you may be my literary hero, but this is TOO MUCH Then all those other authors came to mind, those brilliant author [...]

    4. Re reading the play this time, I liked it a little better than I thought I would I predicted that the brutal treatment of Katharine by Petruchio would ruin the play for me, but it didn t From the induction involving Christopher Sly, the text of The Taming of the Shrew is full of so many transformations tinker to lord, page to lady, servant to rich young man, rich young man to teacher of grammar, rich suitor to music teacher, wandering scholar to prosperous merchant, etc as well as so many litera [...]

    5. I really don t buy the irony Here is a play by a very young Shakespeare trying to appeal to the masses here is a play that purposely appeals to the misogynistic beliefs of its early audiences, and I really don t like it This is what should have happened at the end Katherine I m a Shrew I m a woman who stands upFor herself and for her sisters alikeI have a voice I will not be tamed byMen who think themselves overlords Instead we have a rather meek speech in which a broken woman who has been depri [...]

    6. Book ReviewThe Taming of the Shrew is one of William Shakespeare s earliest plays and comedies, produced in the mid 1590s We read this play in 8th or 9th grade as one of the introductions to Shakespeare in an English course I d rank this somewhere in the middle in terms of his comedies as well as works in general It s got several funny moments ironic humor but it s also a bit weaker in terms of style and hidden meanings among all the words and characters The plot is strong, and copied by many in [...]

    7. Taming of the Shrew was, I think, one of Shakespeare s better comedies, though not one of his better plays In fairness, I think I d like to see this performed and I may enjoy it much , and a wiser person than I has observed that plays are meant to be seen, not just read I would perhaps amend that observation that to be fully appreciated, a play should be seen AND read A clever producer could have fun with this antiquated misogyny.This explores betrothal and arranged marriages than romance and h [...]

    8. A practical joke can be carried to the extreme, in the northern Italian city of Padua, in the time of the glorious Renaissance, a poor intoxicated man a tramp in fact , strangely named Christopher Sly, is found by an amused nobleman, outside a filthy tavern, sleeping on the dirt, in the street, people walking by, ignoring the unfortunate human Until this Lord has an idea, take him to his impressive mansion and pretend that the lush, is really the owner, exchange identities, the nobleman becomes [...]

    9. I was curious about the controversy generated by the dynamics between genders that academics and readers have discussed for years in this early romantic comedy, which brought some memorable moments that hilariously reminded me of Much ado about nothing.Sarcasm, bickering and jocular scenes abound in this play, but there is an extra dose of provocative innuendo Even the title is condemnable for its lack of political correctness, as it implies that Kate, the female protagonist and eldest daughter [...]

    10. They say TV and video games are a bad influence, well, this play has been corrupting minds since 1590 It s crap like this that makes people think that playing mind games with one another is the correct path to true love It says that lying about who you are and what your intentions are, as well as flat out pretending to be something you re not, that is the way, says The Taming of the Shrew, to win love and warp a person into who you want them to be Poppycock, I say Hold on pleasejust give me a se [...]

    11. As with all of Shakespeare s plays, there s always a different interpretation always handy at foot, be it a woman s duty to place her hand under her husband s foot or not.As it is, though, I can both be supremely annoyed with a society that demands that women be always so obedient, culturally, and be wickedly satisfied that Kate and Petruchio have worked out a true meeting of the minds and wills in such a way as to transcend all other s expectations.There s a little something for everyone in thi [...]

    13. I m not even kidding This play is violent than King Lear True, nobody dies in it after all, it is a comedy although whether you find it funny or not is a different matter but it is violent nonetheless You know that sick feeling that manifests itself in the pit of your stomach when watching scenes of domestic violence or otherwise abusive relationships in movies or on TV Isn t it funny then how dormant that feeling seems to be when watching instead scenes of bloodbath laden homicide la Quentin T [...]

    14. It makes some people feel better to believe that the rampant misogyny in this play is supposed to be ironic Well, whatever I still don t much enjoy watching a woman having her spirit broken down until she s nothing but a shell of what she once was.

    15. I am ashamed that women are so simpleTo offer war where they should kneel for peace,Or seek for rule, supremacy, and sway,When they are bound to serve, love, and obey William Shakespeare, Taming of the Shrew, Act V, 2The second play in my First Folio journey is The Taming of the Shrew The obvious discussion surrounding this play has to be Shakespeare s views, as expressed in this play, of women I think any defense of Shakespeare s attitudes are silly Shakespeare was a contradiction, especially t [...]

    16. The Taming of the Shrew is definitely not the late 16th century proto feminist masterpiece you ve been hankering for, but what it lacks in positive portrayals of the fairer sex, is overshadowed by the bounding leaps of comic gusto on display in every line of verse Simply put, TTotS is a caustic farce of the war between the sexes the merry war that, due to inbreeding and lack of imagination, would eventually devolve into the barely functioning aborted mutant that is the modern day RomCom that rev [...]

    17. I think it can go undisputed how misogynistic this is, but in a way, its ability to anger me was impressing Idk The content sucked, but I think it sucked for a reason I don t think Shakespeare hates women and thinks they re inferior to men, yet I wish this had of a comeback arc I loved when Katharina was sassy and angry and at the end of the book she ended up so subdued, and I was waiting for her to snap back, but she never did I m disappointed.

    18. This is a deeply troubling and often frankly misogynistic play, and I m not here to defend those aspects of it However I saw a version of it years ago that turned the misogyny on its head in a way that I thought was interesting, and perhaps truer to the many levels on which Shakespeare worked It was a Shakespeare in the Park production, in New York, starring Morgan Freeman and Tracey Ullman, and you can imagine how fantastic that was The best part was how they did the end of the play that long, [...]

    19. I can see why this play is little appreciated nowadays it runs so completely counter to the modern notions of gender equality and feminism I freely confess that Petruchio s methods with Katharina are rough in an indirect manner from passionate reviews I expected him to beat her every day before breakfast, but in fact he uses crazier, shrewish means On the other hand, she frankly deserves what she gets She was not strong minded she was downright nasty, and the way Petruchio brings their relation [...]

    20. The feminist issues can be answered with the simplest argument that there is no knowing Shakespeare s intentions The best of his characters are always doing most villianious things Shylock Othello, Caliban, Brutus, Iago etc The fact that they come to a bad end might only show Shakespeare s realism But amid all prejudice that other characters show to them, the dislikable things they do and bad end they meet they are still the ones that one feels most attracted towards Kate is no different in that [...]

    21. Thank goodness that s overThe Taming of the Shrew starts off purely as a noble man playing a prank on a drunkard in a bar It s a mean joke, making out this drunkard has always been a noble man his entire life, making out as though nothing has ever changed It seems funny at first and has made me laugh plenty of times although some of that may be down to my own humour of finding the way Shakespeare writes phrases such as Sir Give him head but it is enjoyable.Quickly, a play arises within the play [...]

    22. Talk not to me I shall go sit and weepTill I can find occasion of revenge.Like The Merchant of Venice, whose anti Semitism makes us squirm, this play presents a sticky problem to modern audiences was Shakespeare a misogynist And it must be said that the misogyny present in this play is difficult to excuse than the prejudice against poor Shylock, since Shakespeare is not clearly in sympathy with the titular shrew, Katherine, as he is with the Venetian merchant So just as bardolaters have striven [...]

    23. To celebrate William Shakespeare on his birthday in April, my plan is to locate a staging of six plays I ll listen to and watch these on my MacBook, following along to as much of the original text as is incorporated by the production Later, I ll read the entire play in the modern English version A good friend I ve had since high school recommended this system to me and it s been a very good system for delighting the mind in Shakespeare.Next up, The Taming of the Shrew Because none of Shakespeare [...]

    24. There was a reason why I chose not to post that many updates with this play Because they all would have included some F bombs This play is super messed up and I cannot believe that anyone watches this and thinks, hey this is funny and so romantic It is not Well something nice first I am very happy that I had the Folger s version which included notes on what certain words or phrases meant, and an explanation prior to certain scenes to explain them to me Now onto something not so nice.This whole f [...]

    25. The Taming of the Shrew has to be one of the most difficult of Shakespeare s plays for a modern woman to appreciate I don t know about you, but I found it difficult to watch an independent young woman being tamed into a Stepford wife I went to the cinema to see a version filmed at Stratford, Ontario Canada s Shakespeare capitol and I have to say that they did it extremely well The drunken tinker at the beginning of the play became a drunken blogger, being belligerent in the audience The music hu [...]

    26. Why, there s a wench Kiss me, Kate This is terribly sexist and I should have been appalled but I absolutely loved it It was really funny.

    27. It was okay.I know the basic story, as many people do I ve seen the famous movie with Richard Burton and Liz Taylor I studied this particular play in college, too, and overall I am not overly impressed.It s the story of a young man who wants a rich wife, but the wife he wants has an older sister who must be married off first Typical trope, seen in many a story, movie, etc and this was already a well known trope in Shakespeare s time, too So clever machinations ensue in which another man, Petruch [...]
