One of Shakespeare's classic comedies, The Taming of the Shrew is the Bard's cynical take of the whole "love thing." Critics have disagreed for centuries over what is going on here. Is Kate ever "tamed?" Or does she pull the wool over Petruchios' eyes by making him think she's tamed? Or maybe he's just a big jerk and deserves a good beating? You decide.
