The Taming of the Shrew

An earlier comedy from the Bard, The Taming of the Shrew brings us the feisty Katherina (the 'Shrew' of the title) and her peers. Addressing issues of cruelty and gender relations, this 'modern' play has enjoyed many adaptations on both the stage and the screen. Part of the Barnes & Noble Shakespeare series, this title features newly edited texts prepared by leading scholars from Great Britain and America, in collaboration with one of the world's foremost Shakespeare authorities, David Scott Kastan of Columbia University. Together they have produced texts as faithful as possible to those that Shakespeare wrote.
