Abstract

The Taming of the Shrew is an early play by William Shakespeare. The feminism and consciousness presented in this work are controversial, and the modern readers and drama critics have different opinions on it. This paper will take Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew as the main research object, focusing on the female consciousness in it. And this paper will analyze the performance of female consciousness at that time through interpreting the female characters in The Taming of the Shrew, so as to provide some reference for a better understanding of Shakespeare’s view of women. In the end, it is concluded that Shakespeare’s view of women is full of humanistic care and it is valuable in the historical background at that time.
