Katherine’s Final Speech

Let’s enjoy the final speech of Katherine (the Shrew), from Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, as played so well by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1967 movie from the play.

But first, as background, here is Katherine as we first meet her. The meek and beautiful Bianca is Katherine’s younger sister:

Here, Petrucchio (tempted by a big cash payoff from Katherine’s father, who is eager to be rid of her), proposes to Katherine.

Katherine’s final speech. She is still the same powerful, dynamic, pushy woman (she literally throws Bianca to the floor), but what a wife!
