This Character

Act, Scene and lines Analysis of the Element




Act 1, Scene 1

BAPTISTA: “Gentlemen, importune me no farther,
For how I firmly am resolved you know;
That is, not bestow my youngest daughter
Before I have a husband for the elder:
If either of you both love Katharina,
Because I know you well and love you well,
Leave shall you have to court her at your pleasure.”


Foreshadowing shows that Katharina will be the more difficult of the two daughters for whom Baptista must find a husband.






First and Second huntsman


Induction , scene 1

Even as a flattering dream or worthless fancy.Then take him up and manage well the jest:Carry him gently to my fairest chamber And hang it round with all my wanton pictures:Balm his foul head in warm distilled watersAnd burn sweet wood to
?make the lodging sweet:Procure me music ready when he wakes,To make a dulcet and a heavenly sound;”




Imagery gives us a good picture in our heads of what is going on.


Figurative Language






_O monstrous beast! how like a swine he lies!”_



Figurative language is just a boost in writing. Such as a simile like from this quote, it brings entertainment into the dialog.
