Frances Dolan's (no relation) Bedford Shrew has several examples of
contemporaneous ballads and other material which, while not exactly
"sources" show that similar stories circulated.

Even so, by the by, my first year students' sense that this play has to
have a "happy" (either Kate's kidding or she's in LOVE) ending seems
pretty had to budge.

The books teaches well and the play sparks discussions of various kinds
in the introductory context.
