But a hero is not perfect and therefore most always will do something that knocks them down a notch in your eyes. I thought long and hard about who my hero should be. There are plenty of people who I admire, but I admire them for all the wrong reasons. There are plenty of people who I wish I could be like, but once again I want to be like them for all the wrong reasons. To me, a hero is unrealistic.

fulfil. By Taming Kate, Shakespeare presents a message of social order. Although Kate started as a 'shrew' we see a final submission of acceptance of the patriarchal system in her final speech. " And place your hands below your husband's foot. In token of which duty, if he please, my hand is ready, may it do him ease." Shakespeare has chosen to use submissive tone connotations such as 'ease' and 'duty' as a reminder of the roles both females and males had In the era, which suggests patriarchy was accepted and unchallenged.As an appropriation, "10 Things I Hate About You" represents the same ideas, though they are altered to suit the time and context.

"Is 10 things I hate about you an effective transformation which enriches the original text"In The Taming of the Shrew, there is a strong undercurrent of issues such as roles of women in society, appearance versus reality and the love of wealth which men have. Shakespeare portrays lively characters to depict these universal concepts and thus critiques the social conventions of patriarchal society. Gil Jugner has adapted 10 Things I Hate about You to further enrich and effectively transform the themes of which Shakespeare explored, although from a different approach as the context is updated to a more modern perspective helping the audience to relate and understand the concepts.Shakespeare

changed the most since Shakespeare's time is the role of men and women. Today, generally, men and women are treated as equals. In actual fact, preconceptions based on gender are considered to be discrimination and can have severe consequences.Overall, this play is about masculine assertiveness, game-playing and masculine ideas. Shakespeare's brilliant use of language is the key to the success of this play. Through Shakespeare's language, themes of love, power, status and deception are conveyed to the audience.There are many similarities between "The Taming of The Shrew" and "Ten Things I Hate About You".

fantastic trait every person should have. My grandmother was a very dependable person, you could count on her for anything: cheerleading practices, graduations, doctors appointments, anything you needed her for she was there. There were eleven of us but she always maintained to appear where and when she was needed no matter the circumstances and I admired her for that and teaching me the importance of being dependable. It shows a lot in a person when you know that they will be there for you whenever they are needed.
My grandmother is a person whom I will always love and strongly admire. Without her life lessons and wisdom on how to love unconditionally, being dependable, avoid stressing over the small stuff, being a hard worker and be sure to make lots of memories with your family and loved ones, I would not be the person I am today. I hope that one day I can be such an admirable person as she was and teach my own children the things she showed me.

I also attended camp in 2013 as a Level 2 camper. My second year at camp didn’t focus so much on teamwork, but more on my own potential, not only in Student Council, but in all aspects of my life. I learned that I alone have the power to make a difference. Level 2 really encouraged me to take risks, and that if I was passionate about something then I could make it happen. All in all, Level 2 showed me that I am capable of accomplishing amazing things, and that I shouldn’t be afraid to try new ideas.
All the people I have met through MASC and all the events I have participated in have inspired me in so many aspects of my life and encouraged me to continually try to better myself as a person and as a leader.

In "The Taming of the Shrew" by William Shakespeare, and "Ten things I hate about you", directed by Gil Junger, both contexts reflect the society of when each text was composed. When comparing these two texts and observing the themes, it is indisputable that these contexts have shown the similarity and differences of the values during the time, thus, it shows the evolution of society.Firstly, "The Taming of the shrew" suggests money to be a very important necessity of life during the time. It is a suitor's economic consideration which acts as a determinant to who marries whom. Both Bianca and Katherine are viewed upon by their suitors as "treasures". This is suggested by Petruchio's first

An adaptation of shakespeare’s ‘The Taming of the shrew’, ’10 things I hate about you’ has a lot to live up to and it could be suggested that the makers had a responsibility to address some of the issues in a way that was appealing to 20th century teenagers. This is achieved throughout the film successfully.
There are many obvious connections between shakespeare’s work and the screen adaptation, for example; in ‘The taming of the shrew’ Bianca is not allowed to date boys until her sister, Catarina does. This was tradition of the time period, as Catarina was the eldest sister. Similarly, in ’10 things i hate about you’ Bianca cannot date until her sister Kat does. This was a rule strictly

taming of Katherina, other than an extremely ambiguous reference to Petruchio depriving Kate of sleep when Patrick gently taps Kat on the cheeks to stop her from passing out when she was intoxicated, mostly because Patrick actually cared for her.Another reason for why Ten Things I Hate About You is an unsuccessful film is because there is minimal violence from the play as most of it has been excluded from the film because things such as beating your servants and hitting your younger sister would not be acceptable in todays society. Most violence in the film takes place by signposting with things such as rumours. As the film loses much violence from the play, the

Forced to slow down, I contained the pain in my knee and continued to run at a comfortable pace. With about three miles to go, the pain became excruciating, yet I knew that I had a chance to place well.

In doing so they each reflect the prevailing culture of the time they were composed.A modern audience has the opportunity to compare its society to those of the past, a prospect not offered to those of Elizabethan England. This allows a modern audience the ability to analyse views and opinions throughout history, draw appropriate conclusions about certain issues and in a manner of speaking, learn from their mistakes.

The individual demonstrates this concept by being untroubled by the thoughts and opinions of others, not doing things just to please others and being rebellious. This idea also runs through the play "Taming of The Shrew", written by William Shakespeare 1592, and the movie "10 Things I Hate About You", directed by Gil Junger 1999.To be an individual who disregards their own reputation, it is important to be untroubled by other people's opinions.

Katerina Stratford (Julie Stiles) takes no prisoners in her approach
to life. She lives a virtually un-materialistic life compared to her
little sister Bianca (Larissa Oleynik) who lives life as Daddy's
little princess and loves it. Only one thing stands in the way of
happiness for Bianca; the one rule that stands in her household, 'No
dating until they graduate'. For Bianca this is a penalty worse than
death but for the once popular Kat, it's not an issue. This is
because, according to her sister, Kat 'got bored' of being popular and
thus mutated into 'a particularly hideous breed of loser'.

This means that while the original plot The Taming of The Shrew has been altered in 10 Things, the themes are still the same. Problems of human relationships and the importance of social structures are present in both texts. The characters of 10 Things may use the language of the 1990s and have modern day interests and occupations, but they depict similar types of people with the same traits as Shakespeare's characters.

I agree with this statement, Black Comedy is uncomfortable for some because of it's ability to raise serious issues whilst also ridiculing.
