The Taming of the Shrew, Paperback / softback Book

Description

The New Cambridge Shakespeare appeals to students worldwide for its up-to-date scholarship and emphasis on performance.

The series features line-by-line commentaries and textual notes on the plays and poems.

Introductions are regularly refreshed with accounts of new critical, stage and screen interpretations.

This is the third New Cambridge edition of The Taming of the Shrew, one of Shakespeare's most popular yet controversial plays.

Ann Thompson considers its reception in the light of the hostility and embarrassment that the play often arouses, taking account of both scholarly defences and modern feminist criticism.

For this version the editor pays lively attention to the problematic nature of debates about the play and its reception in the twenty-first century.

She discusses recent editions and textual, performance and critical studies.
