Ideas for Class, Gender & Youth for 'Taming of the Shrew'

TTIHAYClassSocial groups: Money- Joey pays Patrick to go out with Kat.GenderJoey & Cameron would do anything to be with Bianca.YouthBianca & Kat are two very different people, Bianca is a Beautiful & kind person who wants a boyfriend who she shall love, Kat no so much she's Beautiful but she is ill tempered & doesn't want any part of having a boyfriend at all. But is that completely true?

TOTSClassThere is a social hierarchy in 'The Taming of the Shrew' which includes servants, noblemen, lords & a druken beggar (Christophor Sly). TOTS questions social roles by tricking Sly into thinking he is a noble lord. Shakespeare shows you can always disguise social class of clothes, eg the lord dresses as a servant. Social class is also presented in the play when Baptista offers a dowry if Petruchio can tame Katherina.GenderTOTS has alot to say about women, especially about their trditional roles as wives who 'do what they are told'. Bianca is well-behaved, while Kathrina is sharp-tongued & not obedient. Petruchio's abuse of Katherina is used to make the audience laugh. It is used by Shakespeare to expose traditional & oppressive gender roles.YouthYoung people in TOTS are trying to find their identities. Bianca wants to fit the traditional role of a woman & be married, but Katherina fights against this. She does not want to be obedient to a husband.

Which text do I prefer & whyThe text I prefered the most was 'Taming of the Shrew' because it tells you the differences in people like their feelings, expressions & how they can change from being this to that for example Katherina, she was sharp-tongued, rude. But in the end that showed she was obedient was a competion of whos wife was the most obidient, now you would think it would've been Bianca or the widow, no it was Katherina, she came when told, went when told, did everything that Petruchio had said for her to do. It showed how Katherina came a shatrp-tongued shrew to a obidient wife & person, that is why I prefer 'Taming of the Shrew' than '10 things I hate about you'.
