I ended up liking this play more than I thought I would. I actually found the humor in it and liked it even more when I realized that "10 Things I hate about you" originated from it's plot. Although I am not a fan of Petruccio I found his smart ass ways to be entertaining. I think the movie we watched in class last week put the play into perspective more and made it easier to see what the characters true intentions were. When Kate lectured the widow and Bianca towards the end of the play I was shocked; I understood that she was more under Petruccio's command but didn't realize she was completely whipped. It was pathetic because of how serious she was but funny if you compare it to todays standards, because there is no way that a woman of this day and age would ever let that happen; at least I sure hope not.
