I went to see a Preformance of the Taming of the Shrew, knowing little of the details of what it was about, for I had not read this one yet, but I knew that my sister hates the play, though I did not know the full reason, so I went to see it, with the full intent of having an open mind about it, and in spite of my efforts not to think this way, I just hated it. I thought it was the most auful thing ever. And I honestly I really did try not to hate it, and to try and find some vaule in it, but it was just god awful to me. Watching that play made me angery at Shakespeare.
And I really am surprised by how many people acutally seem to like this play. It is a story about a man who decides to train his wife as if she were a dog, and tortures her, in order to physcialy and mentally break her down so that she will become an obedient slave to him.
Then at the end we are all suppose to apploud when Katherina gives her speach about how women are weak and should be subserviant to men.
