Quotations from today

Quotes showing the feelings of women in both ‘Taming of the shrew’ and Sylvia Plath’s poems:

“I’ll see thee hanged on sunday first” – Katherina to Petruchio after petruchio suggest marrying her, suggests that she is prepared for violence with no remorse.
“You lie, in faith, for you are called plain Kate, And Bonny Kate, and sometimes KAte the Curst”

  • I wrote a sample introduction on Remi’s journal that might be of use to you:

    “In the history of literature, the voice of women has often been silent. It comes as no surprise to find that when a woman is finally given a voice, or even better, finds her own voice, that what comes out is angry, extreme and passionate. This is certainly the case of Katharina in William Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew”, and of Sylvia Plath’s poetry. While written at very different times, for markedly different purposes and by very different people, one aspect is remarkably similar – the violent strength of emotion in these women’s voices.”

    Just to give you an idea of the tone I’m encouraging you to search for in your analysis.

    Best wishes for tomorrow.
