The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew, written in the 16th century by William Shakespeare and its adaptation 10 things i hate about you, directed by Gil Junger in 1999 are both contexts that reflect the society of the time texts were composed. The evolution of society from now to then, showing the similarity and the differences of values and ways of life. Because the movie was based of Shakespeare’s play, there are a lot of similarities; the characters, the main structure of the plot, and themes are similar, of course there are also differences since they were told in different forms and shown in different times.
