The Tamer Tamed
In John Fletcher's `sequel' to The Taming of the Shrew, Petruchio marries for a second time and is tamed by his wife Maria in a reversal of roles that has echoes of the sex-strike in Aristophanes' Lysistrata. Written twenty years after Shakespeare's original, The Tamer Tamed is also a revealing insight into changing attitudes to women and marriage in the Jacobean period.
