      After he opens the door, Hortensio welcomes them into his home and asks Petruchio what his plans are. In A Shrew, on the other hand, the story line of the Induction is brought to a conclusion at the end of the play. He refuses to help Katharina when she falls from her horse, beats and berates his servants, and denies his wife food and sleep. A Shrew is an early draft of The Shrew. Project Gutenberg updates its listing of IP addresses approximately monthly.

      Along the way, they meet Vincentio, who is also on his way to Padua, and Katherina agrees with Petruchio when he declares that Vincentio is a woman and then apologises to Vincentio when Petruchio tells her that he is a man. This seems to define his personal style, and his aim seems to be to produce his own version, presumably intended that it should be tuned more towards the popular era than The Shrew. Marcus very much believes the play to be what it seems. The play has a complex structure. They encourage Petruchio, who has come to Padua to find a wealthy wife, to court Katherine and free Bianca to marry.

      However, when Vincentio reaches Padua, he encounters the pedant, who claims to be Lucentio's father. Because of his unruly behavior, everyone near Petruchio fears for his or her life. When Tranio tries to keep the ruse going, Vincento becomes more angry while he tries to out Tranio. The imposters call Vincentio a madman and a liar and ask that Baptista imprison him.
