Module Two: Shakespeare

The Taming of the Shrew

"Katherina and Petruchio are the only true characters in the play. The others are pale shadows by comparison." Do you agree?

Discuss The Taming of the Shrew as a play of "supposes".

Read Biondello's description of Petruchio's arrival on his wedding day and the comments made by Baptista and Tranio (III:2:41-71). What is the significance of this speech in terms of the whole play?
