    comes to Katharina. Shakespeare structured this story by using clever languages, drama and the most important plot twists. At the end you see that Katherina changes from a mean and evil shrew to a “honey tongued trophy wife.” For starters clever language was an important part of this story. Petruchio falls in love with Katharina’s rude and vulgar attitude mainly because he is the same way. He challenges ever comment and gives her back the same attitude that she gives him.

Bad Münstereifel is a relatively small and normal village – where everyone one another. There is an awareness of family in the village, as Pia states, “I remember my hometown
