10 Things I Hate About You And Taming Of The Shrew

Improved Essays
Between the movie 10 Things I Hate About You and the play Taming of the Shrew. Petruchio and Patrick are motivated for different things. Petruchio in the book is a self centered jerk who wants to hook up and make money. In the movie Patrick is a guy that everyone is scared of but he’s still a caring person. I believe that Petruchio in both is someone that has a carefree attitude and developed feelings that he thought wouldn't be possible by the end of the story. The movie 10 things I hate about you start off with grumio paying patrick to take out katherine so he can take out biannca but once patrick realises how much of a catch she is he starts to develop feeling for her.The play taming of the shrew starts off with a shrew named katherine she is a rude and disobedient and she is wanted only for money not how others feel about her.
Petruchio comes to town looking to hookup for money and finds out about Katherine and confess his “love” but really it is a disguise to get her money, have sex, and him to prove that he is able to tame any shrew. What, with my tongue in your tail? It shows him that he is a pervert and wants her for just sex but he shows later that even if she doesn’t he is okay because he still gets her money.
But in the movie as Patrick he is the rebel kid

I believe that Petruchio in both is someone that has a carefree attitude and developed feelings that he thought wouldn't be possible by the end of the story. This story ends differently because of the cultural societal expectations that their expected to have and want and what they are actually motivated to do like marry for money and take her out but it's more involved into the money making

    Both men find a soft spot in their heart for the girl who is just as stubborn and independent as he, a challenge the two men enjoy. It seems it’s all about the chase for them, all about getting the girl for the money. What both characters lack at the beginning of the film in love and compassion, they make up for in the latter parts. Compared to Petruchio, patrick is far more troublesome, but charming at the same time. He has a stronger will to be with…

    indeed talk to her and she does not care for him one bit but Petruchio tells his father that she is madly in love and her father does not even question it. We see these characters as displayed as bad people at the beginning of the play for what we know of them know.

You see them being changes some forcefully and others so subtly we don’t see the change until it actually happened.…

    Personally I think that the character Jasper Bloom plays an extremely selfish man, who does not consider other's lives as important as his own. I especially don't like the way he bounces from women to women and just makes excuses that he's confused, it's ridiculous in my opinion. Although I, myself haven't had this experience as I'm still young and I have a lot to learn about love, but I stand by the fact that he is selfish and continues to think about himself rather than those that are around him. An example of this is when Jasper Bloom visits Iris in Hollywood and makes promises to run away with her, even while he continues to be engaged to Sarah one of Iris' colleagues at work. I feel as if the author's' intention was to persuade the audience that men such…
