The Taming of the Shrew

Written by William Shakespeare

Part of the Collins Classics Series

The Taming of the Shrew Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. Bianca is beautiful and demure, with a plethora of wood-be suitors, but marriage is forbidden until her older sister Katherina finds a suitable match. The hitch? Fiery Katherina has sworn to deny the hand or demands of any would-be suitor. That is, until she meets her match in the wily Petrucio. As Katherina's own sharp tongue is met by Petrucio's feigned cruelty, the `shrew' apparently capitulates. Or does she? This controversial comic tale, famously adapted into Cole Porter's Kiss Me Kate and 10 Things I Hate About You, has divided and amused audiences for over 400 years in an unforgettable battle of wits.
