The Taming of the Shrew by Macaw Books

One of Shakespeare's most robust comedies, The Taming of the Shrew is about Katherine, the ill-tempered daughter of a wealthy merchant in Padua. Katherine is so petulant that her father believes no man will ever want her as his wife. However, Petruchio, a rich young man, comes into Katherine's life and brings about a great change in her behaviour.
