From the Royal Shakespeare Company – a modern, definitive edition of Shakespeare's controversial comedy of the war between the sexes. With an expert introduction by Sir Jonathan Bate, this unique edition presents a historical overview of The Taming of the Shrew in performance, takes a detailed look at specific productions, and recommends film versions. Included in this edition are interviews with two leading directors and an actress - Gregory Doran, Phyllida Lloyd and Michelle Gomez – providing an illuminating insight into the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible. This edition also includes an essay on Shakespeare's career and Elizabethan theatre, and enables the reader to understand the play as it was originally intended – as living theatre to be enjoyed and performed. Ideal for students, theatre-goers, actors and general readers, the RSC Shakespeare editions offer a fresh, accessible and contemporary approach to reading and rediscovering Shakespeare's works for the twenty-first century.
