Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew: A Commentary, Part II

Dr. White concludes his two-part direct analysis of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.In this comedy, we see the male ego at work and the wooing of a woman. Unlike the typical depiction of men and women today, we see – with all their flaws – a real man and woman interacting in this comedy. Dr. White brings out the concept of marital obedience and discusses St. Paul and his letter to the Ephesians. In the play, we are able to see the change made in Petruchio who gives Katerina his full affection in the end. There is a question and answer period where Dr. White speaks on chastity, the difficulty moderns have in understanding the ideabehind the play, and how Shakespeare speaks timeless truths.
