This version is full of nonsensical symbols, making the play hard to follow. Quite a disappointment.

This is a scanned version where the scanner didn't pick up the words properly. This version is unreadable!

The Taming of the Shrew is Shakespeare at his sardonic and biting best. Combining love with diabolical humor and endless, bitter fighting between the angry, mean, but passionate Katherine and the loving, trustworthy, and intelligent Petruchio in Venice Italy, makes this his most ambitious, marvelous, and magnificent comedy ever. Rambunctiously comical, and touching tale told with sparkling talent.

The Taming of the Shrew is Shakespeare's comedic play about the rough Petruchio trying to tame the shrew, Kate. The play is filled with trickery and deception as several characters decide to switch places to achieve their own ends and Petruchio uses harsh methods to tame Kate under the guise of concern for her. Petruchio finally tames Kate when he makes a bet with a few friends over whose wife is most obedient and Kate is the only one to answer her husband's call. The play is very entertaining and well worth the read.
