    Written early in the 17th century, John Fletcher’s The Woman’s Prize; or, the Tamer Tamed presents a continuation of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Finding himself a widower, wife-tamer Petruchio marries the “sweet soul” Maria. Well aware of Petruchio’s reputation, Maria, her sister Livia, and their cousin Bianca set out to tame him. Comedy, celibacy, and emptied-chamber pots ensue. Will the women be foiled? Will the men be tamed? Can they all learn “to love mutually”?
