Overview
The Taming of the Shrew is unique among Shakespeare s plays and is a perennial and compelling success in the theatre. Its reception is marked, however, by on-going polarized debate over the meaning and worth of the play. This edition disengages Shakespeare s exuberant and disturbing marital farce from the tangled history of its reception. It views the two sixteenth-century Shrew plays as textually independent but theatrically interdependent and so includes the full text of The Taming of A Shrew in an appendix. While the Introduction and Commentary focus on the critical and theatrical debate surrounding the play, the original and comprehensive editing of the playtext makes available a different Shrew, more open to the reader s interpretation than is usually the case.
