Summary

Controversial and sexually charged, The Taming of the Shrew is possibly Shakespeare's first play, and certainly among the most performed. Is it a mere saga of brute male domination or a passionate love story with a powerful moral punch? To read this play is to gain unique insight into a portrait of a marriage created by a true master.

Illustrated throughout by Sir John Gilbert (1817-1897), famous for his depictions of historical scenes. As well as Shakespeare, he illustrated works of Sir Walter Scott, Cervantes, Wilkie Collins and Wordsworth.

With an Afterword by Ned Halley.
