Taming of the shrew

In The Taming of the Shrew, written by William Shakespeare, there are many different manipulations that happen. The main one, of course, is Petruchio changing Kate into becoming a real lady instead of being her normal shrewish self. Kate was known as being a sharp-tongued, quick-tempered lady, especially when someone brings up anything to do with her getting married to a man. She was in her own little world, not wanting to listen or do anything that was told to her. Petruchio arrived in Padua looking for the perfect women to marry. He wanted to find a lady with a lot of money; that was his goal. Kate is the daughter of the wealthiest man in Padua, Baptista Minola, and has gotten everything that she could of wanted growing up. The only thing missing in her life is for her to become a real lady and find a husband to marry. After Petruchio arrives in Padua from his home in Verona to find a wife, he soon meets Kate and knows right away that she is the one he is going to marry. He does not know how difficult it will be to have her love him and treat him nice, but he is up for the challenge due to the money her family has. Petruchio tames Kate by using his charm and smooth talking to get through her thick head and calm her down as a person.
