The Taming of the Shrew is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1590 and 1592. The play begins with a framing device, often referred to as the induction, in which a mischievous nobleman tricks a drunken tinker named Christopher Sly into believing he is actually a nobleman himself. The nobleman then has the play performed for Sly's diversion.

The Taming of the Shrew is a comedy by William Shakespeare. It was one of his earlier plays, believed to have been written between 1590 and 1594. The basic elements of the story are present in the 14th-century Castilian tale of the "young man who married a very strong and fiery woman". The play's subplot, involving the characters Bianca and Lucentio, derives from Ludovico Ariosto's I Suppositi, either directly or through George Gascoigne's English version Supposes (performed 1566, printed 1573). (Quote from the AuthorWilliam Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)William Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564 - 23 April 1616) was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "The Bard"). His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.Shakespeare produced most of
I will admit that while I am not a huge fan of Shakespeare, mostly for the language, I did really enjoy this book. By far one of my favorite books by him, and also one that I felt was ACTUALLY humorous, compared to some of the other comedies. It was definitely sexist, but I think that it kind of expected based on the time it was written. I would suggest to anyone looking for an easier Shakespeare read or one to introduce them into his works.
I love Shakespeare. I love Shrew. This version is not only badly formatted, it is missing all of Act II (my favorite part) but also Act III scene I. Also, the "illustrations" are just weird. What on earth does a formal portrait of George Washington have to do with anything?
I dared to attempt this play with my upper-intermediate EFL students, and it went down very well! I don't think it would have been possible without this particular version, as we mostly read together the modern version, cutting to the original text at various moments of the play. It was nice to have the students actually understand and laugh at appropriate moments instead of blankly continuing to read without comprehending. Having the original text to one side means they can go back at their leisure and read it with more understanding. I recommend this version for beginners of Shakespeare and for non-native speakers of English.
As to the edition: the formatting works well for me. Numbering is done in line like my bible and references well cross linked into their own section rather than footnoted. Not the best if you intend to have your device read via TTS but quite amicable to reading on screen. There is also much historical supplements/ editorial follow on (half the length) and a very deep reference to Shakespeare's English. I can't think of anything more to ask off the book.

With regard to the story: Funny :-). Can't say that I agree with the method of taming but admit, a shrew is a shrew and a comedy is a comedy. That's how I chose to view it.

It's Shakespeare. I'm not going to dare review his work. The extras are a nice touch with editorials and historical references which helps in the reading especially if you are not used to old English. A classic worth having as a book rather than an electronic version.
This is a fabulous accounting of the history of THE TAMING OF THE SHREW in interpretation and production... It is very illuminating in how certain sections @ Petruchio's house have been cut, interpreted and played. Extremely enlightening in various combinations of Kates and Petruchios under the guidance of the great directors of Europe, UK and USA.. A useful aid in discovering one's own interpretation of the low comedic scenes. A lovely dramaturgical history. Very helpful as well in explaining textual flaws, copiers' errors and how reactions and relationships work between characters in staging and blocking.
I really haven't used this Edition. I actually found it inconvenient to carry around each individual play in a separate book. Personally, I was very surprised about this. I think this may be because sometimes my class only spends one class session on some of the plays. We are reading every comedy and every history. :-)
It's Shakespeare; who are we to critique the writing?

Although it's been more than 40 years since I graduated with a degree in English and I've retired from a non-literary career in government, I still read Shakespeare on a regular basis. I'm updating my collection with volumes that will fit into my backpack for travel. This edition meets my needs perfectly.
