  • "William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in late April 1565 and baptised there on 26th April. He was one of eight children. Little is known about his life but what is evident is the enormous contribution he has made to world literature. His writing was progressive, magnificent in scope and breathtaking in execution. His plays and sonnets helped enable the English language to speak with a voice unmatched by any other. William Shakespeare died on April 23rd 1616, survived by his wife and two daughters. He was buried two days after his death in the chancel of the Holy Trinity Church. The epitaph on the slab which covers his grave includes the following passage, Good friend, for Jesus's sake forbear, to dig the dust enclosed here. Blessed me the man that spares these stones, and cursed be he that moves my bones. Here we publish his comedy from 1593 'The Taming of the Shrew'."@en

  • "The Taming of the Shrew is perhaps one of Shakespeare's most controversial plays by modern standards. Hinging on the courtship between the arrogant Petruchio and the "shrew" of the title Katherina, it is unclear whether Shakespeare's blatantly misogynistic themes were in earnest or tongue in cheek. The charming and tender Bianca is forbidden to marry until her elder sister, Katherine is spoken for. Bianca's suitors enlist Petruchio to woo Katherina for her dowry ..."@en

  • "The Taming of the Shrew is one of the most famous and controversial of Shakespeare's comedies. The central relationship, in which Petruchio boisterously "tames" a rebellious Kate, has often appeared problematic. In the theatre, it has been treated in a diversity of ways, so that Kate's apparent capitulation varies between the ironic and the sincere. Feminists have been divided in their responses. The provocative vitality of this comedy has been transmitted by numerous adaptations for stage and screen, notably the film directed by Franco Zeffirelli and the Cole Porter musical, Kiss Me, Kate."@en

The story of Katherina, the "shrew" of the title, and Petruchio, her "tamer," the comedy displays an interesting gender dynamic. The play opens with an induction featuring Christopher Sly, a drunken tinker who wrecks havoc on a local alehouse. For years, the comedy has been criticized for its misogynistic and patriarchal tones, especially in the famous ending speech from Kate. While some critics bemoan this passage, others believe that the over-the-top induction point to the farcical intention of the play in its entirety."@en
