Meva Tinsley Monson/Lovett Sophomore World Literature 4 May 2009 The Mystery of Disguise Although the movie 10 Things I Hate About You displays some deceptive moments, deception is the key motive in The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare. Both physically and emotionally, The Taming of the Shrew captivates deception within the mastery of disguise. Shakespeare’s play The Taming of the Shrew tells the story of two daughters in which the eldest must get married before the youngest. The modest Bianca has no deficiency of admirers (Gremio, Hortensio, and Lucentio), but Baptista, her loving father, demands that she not marry until her shrewish sister Katherine becomes engaged. The many suitors to Bianca persuade the money hungry Petruchio to woo Katherine.
“Macbeth” was considered ‘a play fit for a king’, as Shakespeare wrote the play for the recently crowned king of England, James I. Women in the mid-20th century had the vote, but still lived in a male dominated society in which many jobs were unavailable to them, and they were expected to stay at home, cook and have babies. Also the Great Depression caused by the Wall Street Crash in 1929 worsened the situation, as even men were out of work, so it was even more unlikely for a woman to get a job. The two characters will be compared using relationships, evil, ambition, and the structure of both texts. Lady Macbeth is presented through the theme of evil.

Back in the 1600s Shakespeare wrote plays that would specifically please the Monarch, as there was more pressure to gain acceptance; his comical plays would restore Social Class in the form of marriage. Abigail's Party fails to follow this structure that is used even in modern plays and films, which is why I refer to it as a Social Tragedy, where the social class was broken. Like in Shakespeare's Tragedy 'Romeo and Juliet' the two lovers are married, then torn apart by death as a consequence of a conflicting social class, this can be loosely mirrored in Abigail's Party. A typical example within the play of an unhappy marriage would involve Beverly and Lawrence. Though they are married, which implies a certain amount of love and a strong relationship, they seem to fail at every part of the stereotypical marriage.

Shakespeare subverts gender roles like this throughout the play, such as when Lady Macbeth decides her husband is unable to commit the atrocities to sit on the throne and taunts him, insinuating things about his manhood and claiming he has "th' milk of human kindness" (Act 1, 5.15) implying that he isn't strong enough to kill King Duncan. There is also a moment during a soliloquy where she wishes she could unsex herself so she could do the job without an inkling of guilt. (Act 1.5.38-41). This goading, as Lady Macbeth is aware, became a powerful tool in emasculinating her husband and forcing his hand to prove that he is in fact up to the task. This is the first time we see where the power lies, and this dynamic proves that it resides with Lady Macbeth; she's the one that's controlling things, despite the times.

Like many feminist writer, Cockerline focuses her emphasis on how social norm discriminate women by inhibit their job opportunities. Throughout the history, social norm restricts women’s power by only allow them to contribute to certain job tasks such as maid, cook, and house keeper. In the beginning of the story, Elizabeth’s father “refuses[s] to pay her school fees” since “his wife had finally birthed a son” directly supports the idea that men are more superior to women. Since education is one of the key elements that lead to better chances of having a job, the narrator eliminates this opportunity to contribute to Elizabeth’s misfortune. Furthermore, the narrator indicates “[i]t can be a hard place for a
