In the end of Taming of the Shrew, the shrew Katherine says: “Such duty as the subject owes the prince. Even such a woman oweth to her husband;” (Shakespeare 5.2 2663) This is a crucial line in the play, as most of the plot in Taming of the Shrew, revolves around the trials and tribulations of Petruchio attempting to tame Katherine, the shrew of the Minola family. Petruchio is a stubborn man (similar to Kate), hell-bent on taming Kate, as he sees her hard exterior, and makes it his mission to break that tough exterior she holds up. Petruchio at the beginning of the play seems like a man that is insolent to his servants, and only worried about marrying for financial gain, but we soon see this as untrue. Petruchio is a dynamic character which we see as he embarks on a journey to tame Katherine and take her as his wife.
