About the Book

The Taming of the Shrew is a satire by William Shakespeare, accepted to have been composed somewhere in the range of 1590 and 1592. The play starts with an outlining gadget, frequently alluded to as the enlistment, wherein a wicked aristocrat deceives a tanked tinker named Christopher Sly into accepting he is an aristocrat himself. The aristocrat then has the play performed for Sly's redirection. The fundamental plot portrays the romance of Petruchio and Katherina, the willful, resolved wench. At first, Katherina is a reluctant member of the relationship; nonetheless, Petruchio "restrains" her with different mental and actual tortures, like holding her back from eating and drinking, until she turns into an attractive, agreeable, and respectful lady for him to marry. The subplot highlights a rivalry between the admirers of Katherina's more youthful sister, Bianca, who is viewed as the "ideal" lady. Whether or not the play is sexist has turned into the subject of significant contention, especially among current researchers, crowds, and perusers. The Taming of the Shrew has been adjusted various times for stage, screen, drama, artful dance, and melodic theater. The most renowned transformations are Cole Porter's Kiss Me, Kate; McLintock, a 1963 American Western satire film, featuring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara; and the 1967 film of the play, featuring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The 1999 secondary school satire film 10 Things I Hate About You, and the 2003 lighthearted comedy Deliver Us from Eva are likewise inexactly inspired by the play.

About Author

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was an English artist and dramatist, broadly viewed as the best essayist in the English language and one of the world's pre-famous playwrights. His magnetic works comprise 38 plays, 154 pieces, two long story sonnets, and a few other sonnets. Shakespeare was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. He was 18 when he got married to Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three kids: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Somewhere in the period between 1585 and 1592, he started to professionally work in London as an entertainer, author, and part proprietor of the playing organization then called 'the Lord Chamberlain's Men', later known as the King's Men'. Very few records on Shakespeare's personal life have been collected by now which has led to significant speculations and research on matters such as his sexuality, strict convictions, and whether the works ascribed to him were composed by others. Shakespeare delivered the greater part of his known work somewhere between 1590 and 1613. He was a highly regarded writer and dramatist in his days. However, his standing didn't ascend to its current statures until the nineteenth century. The Romantics acclaimed Shakespeare as a virtuoso and the legends of the Victorian era adored him. Irish novelist, Bernard Shaw termed the word 'bardolatry' in his honor. In the 20th century, his work was rediscovered by new developments in grant and execution.
