"And kiss me, Kate. We will be married o’Sunday"
Petruchio, looking for his fortune in Padua, seeks to marry the strong-willed Katherine, while Lucentio and Bianca steal a marriage from under a father’s nose. The Taming of the Shrew offers a Shakespearean take on feminism and a humorous but, surprisingly modern, look at the age-old battle between the sexes.
With its hilarious Induction, laughably believable characters, and skillfully intertwined plots and subplots, the play provides an excellent introduction to the range of Shakespeare’s comedic talents.
To make The Taming of the Shrew more accessible for the modern reader, our Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary of the more difficult words, as well as convenient sidebar notes to enlighten the reader on aspects that may be confusing or overlooked. In doing this, it is our intention that the reader may more fully enjoy the beauty of the verse, the wisdom of the insights, and the impact of the drama.
