Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew by Kate Maurer


Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew by Kate Maurer

This play within a play is a delightful farce about a fortune hunter who marries and tames the town shrew. The comedy, often produced today because of its accessibility, is one of the plays Shakespeare intended for the general public rather than for the nobility. This concise supplement to Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew helps students understand the overall structure of the work, actions and motivations of the characters, and the social and cultural perspectives of the author.
