Grumio

Soo .... Who is Grumio ?

Grumio is ....

Petruchio’s servant and the fool of the play. He interpret his master's speeches and commands in the most literal and ridiculous. His misinterpretations, are responsible for producing some of the most comedic and virtuosic verbal performances in the play. Even though he appears to be a fool, Grumio is astute.


“Grumio represents the traditional stupidity of “fond reasoning and of clumsy and occasionally unclean quibbling” (Charlton 95)
