Act, Scene and Lines

Explanation/ Analysis


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.”

In these lines, we
are introduced to Baptista, a father who wants to find a husband for his
oldest daughter, Katharina.  The
conflict of the play is also introduced as Baptista has decided that his
youngest daughter cannot marry until Katharina does. These lines provide
readers with some background information on Baptista and his daughters, as
well as their familial relationship. 
They also reveal that while Baptista loves both of his daughter’s, he
is at a loss for how to manage his oldest daughter, Katharina.
