In The Taming of the Shrew, what quote best illustrates that Katherina's doesn't want to get married?
"No shame but mine. I must, forsooth, be forced
To give my hand, opposed against my heart
Unto a mad-brain rudesby, full of spleen
Who wooed in haste and means to wed at leisure"
Act 3, Sc. 2, Lines 8-11
In this quote she uses strong words such as "must," "forced," and "opposed against" to discuss her situation and her impending wedding plans. It works to foreshadow her behavior in the near future as a newlywed which adds to the humor of this play. Enjoy!
