No Shakespeare play is quite as apologized for as Taming of the Shrew, with the obvious exception of Titus Andronicus. What is it about, really? Is it, as some have claimed, a sexist patriarchal proof text? Or is it really a deeply sarcastic commentary on misogynist culture in Shakespeare's time? Is Katharina really a shrew? Is Petruchio really a good man? And what's up with that ending speech?
