Renowned as Shakespeare's most boisterous comedy, The Taming of the Shrew
is the tale of two young men—the hopeful Lucentio and the worldly Petruchio—and the two sisters they meet in Padua. Lucentio falls in love with Bianca, the apparently ideal younger daughter of the wealthy Baptista Minola. But before they can marry, Bianca's formidable elder sister, Katherine, must be wed. Petruchio, interested only in the huge dowry, arranges to marry Katherine—against her will—and enters into a battle of the sexes that has endured as one of Shakespeare's most enjoyable works.
