The Wordsworth Classics' Shakespeare's Series presents a newly-edited sequence of William Shakespeare's works. The textual editing takes account of recent scholarship while giving the material a careful reappraisal.
The Taming of the Shrew is one of the most famous and controversial of Shakespeareâs comedies. The central relationship, in which Petruchio boisterously âtamesâ a rebellious Kate, has often appeared problematic. In the theatre, it has been treated in a diversity of ways, so that Kateâs apparent capitulation varies between the ironic and the sincere. Feminists have been divided in their responses. The provocative vitality of this comedy has been transmitted by numerous adaptations for stage and screen, notably the film directed by Franco Zeffirelli and the Cole Porter musical, Kiss Me, Kate.
