Subject: Question about Taming of the Shrew
"I will be master of what is mine own:
She is my goods, my chattels; she is my house,
My household stuff, my field, my barn,
My horse, my ox, my ass, my any thing;" TOS III, ii
I seem to remember that this speech of Petruchio is a parody of some
passage from either the Bible or the Book of Common Prayer. Can anyone
give me the quote and the passage that this is parodying?
