The Pendant

You Are Not The Father!


The deceitfulness and trickery in Act III and goes into Act IV in "The Taming of the Shrew." Lucentio dresses in disguise and pretends to be Bianca’s tutor Cambio. To take his place, his servant Tranio disguises himself and pretends to be Lucentio. The real Lucentio disguises himself to look scholarly and Bianca’s father Baptista allows him into the household to begin his instructions. Later in the text a pendant is tricked into dressing as Vincentio, Lucentio’s father. The "Pendant" the old man in the play that Tranio (acting as Lutencio) makes his fake father in order to allow Lutencio to marry his beloved Bianca.
