“Discuss how the scene you read from The Taming of the Shrew and the scene you

viewed from Ten Things I Hate About You are comparative.” Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare and the film ten things I hate about you directed by Gil Junger are certainly comparative to each other. The comedy written to entertain its high class audience, shares and contrasts with features of the transformed film, which serves to reflect upon important issues to the teenage audience. As the film was transformed from the play, old features were adapted to new ones, and both similarity and differences are seen. The context differs from the 16th century setting in Italy to the 20th century setting in America. The characters remain synonymous and share similar attributes along with the themes of courtship/dating remaining evident. However, the values and the techniques differ from the play to the film as values are changed throughout time where techniques are different in relation to their form.
