Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Audiences have always delighted in the robust comedy and verbal inventiveness of The Taming of the Shrew. The rapid-fire volley of insults and slurs that Kate and Petruchio hurl at each other throughout the opening scenes are as entertaining as anything Shakespeare ever wrote. And yet they also reveal the abiding tensions between men and women and the treacherous terrain lovers must sometimes cross in their courtship rituals to reach fulfillment.

Roma Gill, the series editor, has taught Shakespeare at all levels. Our well established and popular series which helps all your students to understand and enjoy Shakespeare's plays, has been improved even further. Revised students' notes are clearer, with detailed explanations of difficult words and passages, plot synopses, summaries of individual scenes, and notes on the main characters. This edition features a host of new photographs of stage productions as well as a newly and attractively designed cover. It offers high school students everything they need to comprehend and enjoy one of Shakespeare's liveliest and most entertaining plays.
