Product description


'Thompson … makes admirable use of the play's stage history to show that its depiction of the woman-tamer has always disturbed people … hers remains the introductory essay I would most want my students to read.' English

' … a radically fresh and challenging view of the play.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

Book Description

For this version the editor pays lively attention to the problematic nature of debates about the play and its reception in the twenty-first century. She discusses recent editions and textual, performance and critical studies.
