    The characters are all in the same roles, there are no added characters. They all had the similar characteristics for example Bianca was beautiful but shallow and Kat was mean. The characters interacted in the same way, Kat and Bianca bickered at each other their farther thought what was best for them. Both texts were about love and relationships. Both texts were supposed to be funny and humorous. Both had happy endings.
    Taming of the shrew is set more in the past then 10 things I hate about you. 10 things was set in a school while taming of the shrew took place mainly in people’s houses. In 10 things the farther said to Bianca that she could not date only if Kat did but in T,O,T,S she could not marry until Kat did. In T,O,T,S the language used was Shakespearian but in 10 things they used modern language. In T,O,T,S Katherina makes a speech about men and women’s duty to each other and in 10 things Kat reads a poem about 10 thing she hates about Patrick and their relationship. The last difference is that I enjoyed 10 things more because it was easier to follow and I can relate to it.
