William Shakespeare's play "The taming of the Shrew" is a comedy that presents a complicated relationship between two genders. The events of the play are mainly about two major characters: Katherina and Petruchio. Throughout the play, the first dialogue starts between these two characters, and through it, the reader witnesses a scene full of several elements such as imagery and metaphors. The most predominant element in the dialogue is animal metaphors, and each metaphor holds behind it more than one can expect. Shakespeare uses animal metaphors to illustrate the main theme of the play and to heighten the reader's experience of the play by producing vivid descriptions.
Some people are confused as to why Shakespear included the induction into his play. As the induction did not have anything to do with the story of Petruchio ( played by Richard Barton), and Kate ( played by Liz Taylor).
