Sample text

Kate raises her voice in protest, which leads Petruchio to make up a story about how in private Kate is coy and gentle but they have come to an agreement that “she shall be curst in company” (303). Baptista agrees to the match and Petruchio exits. 30 CliffsNotes Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew Baptista then turns his attention to Bianca’s suitors. Gremio and Tranio vie for her by outlining for Baptista all they can offer her. Whatever Gremio offers, Tranio offers more, until Baptista has no choice but to accept Tranio’s dower, provided he can provide proof that he does, in fact, possess the riches he claims.

Throughout all the commotion of Act IV, Scene 1, we can begin to see a glimmer of change in Katherine. She is beginning to mature and see the world from a perspective other than her own. Our first indication of her growth comes from Grumio’s account of the journey. After her horse slipped and Petruchio began to beat Grumio for the horse’s fall, Kate, seeing the foolhardy injustice of Petruchio’s action, comes to Grumio’s defense, wading “through the dirt to pluck [Petruchio] off [Grumio]” (69–70).

She is, of course, being treated with the same selfish, childish behavior she herself has precipitated for years—only Petruchio is, if possible, even a bit more outlandish because his treatment comes under the guise of caring too much as opposed to not enough. Again, it would not seem that Kate could miss the mirror being held up to her. We see Kate in the process of changing in this scene, but her change is only the most superficial. When Petruchio brings her some food but is not thanked properly, he threatens to take it away.
