    [synopsis] => Classic Books Library presents this new beautiful edition of William Shakespeare's play, "The Taming of the Shrew", featuring a specially commissioned new biography of William Shakespeare. Set in Padua, the story revolves around the comical attempts of Petruchio to court the unwilling, Katharina, portrayed as the bad-tempered 'shrew'. Her younger sister Bianca is desirable and highly sought after by suitors, whereas Katharina is not. Their father orders that Katharina must be married first before Bianca can. Petruchio negotiates the marriage, claiming that he can 'tame' her. After he deprives her of food and sleep, Kate yields to him and becomes a changed woman. The play's apparent misogynistic elements have become the subject of considerable controversy in the present day. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was an English playwright, poet, and actor. He is considered to be the greatest writer in the English language and is celebrated as the world's most famous dramatist.
