Al centro di quest’opera dalla comicità irresistibile, ricca di dialoghi arguti e spavaldi, resi con un linguaggio diretto e irriverente, sta la vicenda di Petruccio, avventuriero veronese che sposa e riesce a soggiogare la “bisbetica” Caterina, attirato soprattutto dalla sua ricca dote. La coppia dei due futuri sposi sa dispiegare una verve teatrale travolgente e senza tempo: le loro liti furibonde, le loro diatribe, i loro diverbi fanno della Bisbetica domata – rappresentata nel 1593 – una delle commedie più riuscite del repertorio shakespeariano.

I really don’t buy the irony. Here is a play by a very young Shakespeare trying to appeal to the masses; here is a play that purposely appeals to the misogynistic beliefs of its early audiences, and I really don’t like it. This is what should have happened at the end: Katherine: I’m a Shrew; I’m a wo Leggi tutto
The gentle gentleman, William Shakespeare pokes glorious fun at customs, marriages , greed and scoundrels, especially pretentious men and women. .. A practical joke can be carried to the extreme, in the northern Italian city of Padua, in the time of the brilliant Renaissance, a poor intoxicated man
Re-reading the play this time, I liked it a little better than I thought I would. I predicted that the brutal treatment of Katharine by Petruchio would ruin the play for me, but it didn't.
