Martes/ “The Taming of the Shrew” by William Shakespeare

Taming of the Shew

“The Taming of the Shrew is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1590 and 1594. The play begins with a framing device, often referred to as the Induction, in which a drunken tinker named Sly is tricked into thinking he is a nobleman by a mischievous Lord. The Lord has a play performed for Sly’s amusement, set in Padua with a primary and sub-plot. The main plot depicts the courtship of Petruchio, a gentleman of Verona, and Katherina, the headstrong, obdurate shrew. Initially, Katherina is an unwilling participant in the relationship, but Petruchio tempers her with various psychological torments – the “taming” – until she is an obedient bride. The sub-plot features a competition between the suitors of Katherina’s less intractable sister, Bianca.”
