The Taming of the Shrew (The New Cambridge Shakespeare)
One of Shakespeare's most popular yet controversial plays, this edition of The Taming of the Shrew considers its reception in the light of the hostility and embarrassment it often arouses, taking account of both scholarly defenses and modern feminist criticism of the play.
For this updated edition Ann Thompson has added new sections to the Introduction which describe the 'deeply problematic' nature of debates about the play and its reception since the 1980s.
She discusses recent editions and textual, performance and critical studies.
