9780393927078: The Taming of the Shrew (Norton Critical Editions)

This Norton Critical Edition of one of Shakespeare’s earliest and best-loved comedies is based on the First Folio (1623).

It is accompanied by “A Note on the Text” and detailed explanatory annotations.

“Sources and Contexts” provides three possible analogues to Shakespeare’s controversial, high-spirited play from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, George Gascoigne’s “Supposes,” and “A Merry Jest of a Shrewd and Curst Wife Lapped in Morel’s Skin.”

“Criticism” offers a wide range of scholarly commentary on The Taming of the Shrew’s in fifteen essays by Laurie Maguire, Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, Bernard Shaw, Natasha Korda, Frances Dolan, Lynda E. Boose, Harold Bloom, Patricia Parker, Shirley Nelson Garner, Juliet Dusinberre, Marea Mitchell, Karen Newman, E. M. W. Tillyard, and Jan Harold Brunvand.

“Rewritings and Appropriations” collects seven adaptations of The Taming of the Shrew from the last four centuries, by John Fletcher, David Garrick, Cole Porter, and Charles Marawitz.

A Selected Bibliography is also included.
