When quick-witted Petruchio meets strong-willed Kate, the sparks (and quips) fly fast and furious in one of Shakespeare’s best-known comedies. Over the course of an extraordinary courtship this most extraordinary couple find themselves tamed by the only force capable of taming them— love. Themes for classroom discussion include courtship, love and marriage, and how much male/female relationships have changed over the centuries.
