Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Love and marriage are the concerns of Shakespeare s The Taming of the Shrew. Lucentio s marriage to Bianca is prompted by his idealized love of an apparently ideal woman. Petruchio s wooing of Katherine, however, is free of idealism. Petruchio takes money from Bianca s suitors to woo her, since Katherine must marry before her sister by her father s decree; he also arranges the dowry with her father. Petruchio is then ready to marry Katherine, even against her will.
Katherine, the shrew of the play s title, certainly acts much changed. But have she and Petruchio learned to love each other? Or is the marriage based on terror and deception?
