Antipholus and Dromio go off with this strange woman, the one to eat dinner and the other to keep the gate. The general tone of Comedy is drawn from Italian comedy of the period, the shrewish wife is a characteristic figure in English comedy, and a number of the ideas about marriage are drawn from early humanists like Erasmus of Rotterdam.
