Product Description

This romantic farce stars gold-digging Petruchio, who is determined to marry a wealthy woman, and tongue-lashing Kate, who fits that requirement but is blatantly truculent, stubborn, and disagreeable. Chaotic fun ensues in this sophisticated comedy featuring numerous disguises, impersonations, and love interests. Now you can tame Shakespeare with this easy-to-understand translation and other aids that make following the action and grasping the meaning a snap.
  • A brief synopsis of the plot and action
  • A comprehensive character list that describes the characteristics, motivations, and actions of each major player
  • A visual character map that shows the relationships of major characters
  • A cycle-of-love graphic that follows the sequence of love in the play, including who truly loves whom, and who mistakenly loves whom
  • Reflective questions that help you understand the themes of the play
  • With Shakespeare on the Double! The Taming of the Shrew, you'll enjoy this rollicking tale of who's who, who's in love with whom, and how Petruchio tames the shrew.

The Taming of the Shrew includes an easy-to-understand modern English translation alongside the original Shakespearian text so that you can read only the translation, read the translation with the original text, or tackle the original text, referring only to the translation when you’re stumped. A comprehensive character list describes the traits of each major character, a visual map depicts relationships, and review questions reinforce important information so you won’t miss the action.
