Shakespeare has deliberately opened up the two-character form he inherited and, as the dramatist he would become, populated the love-sequence in new and drastically more interesting ways. In inventive metaphorical reach alone, Shakespeare excels his predecessors.

Shakespeare's sonnets and narrative poems are something that every well-versed romantic should have a copy of and this . I'm trying to commit sonnet to memory.

No wonder we didn't read this in high school. It famously starts "shall I compare these to a summer's day". These are among the greatest pick up lines of the 16th century. The sonnets are beautiful in their appreciation of love and the feminie form.

Reviews:
  • Vertokini
I will admit that while I am not a huge fan of Shakespeare, mostly for the language, I did really enjoy this book. By far one of my favorite books by him, and also one that I felt was ACTUALLY humorous, compared to some of the other comedies. It was definitely sexist, but I think that it kind of expected based on the time it was written. I would suggest to anyone looking for an easier Shakespeare read or one to introduce them into his works.

I love Shakespeare. I love Shrew. This version is not only badly formatted, it is missing all of Act II (my favorite part) but also Act III scene I. Also, the "illustrations" are just weird. What on earth does a formal portrait of George Washington have to do with anything?
  • Nalmergas
I dared to attempt this play with my upper-intermediate EFL students, and it went down very well! I don't think it would have been possible without this particular version, as we mostly read together the modern version, cutting to the original text at various moments of the play. It was nice to have the students actually understand and laugh at appropriate moments instead of blankly continuing to read without comprehending. Having the original text to one side means they can go back at their leisure and read it with more understanding. I recommend this version for beginners of Shakespeare and for non-native speakers of English.

As to the edition: the formatting works well for me. Numbering is done in line like my bible and references well cross linked into their own section rather than footnoted. Not the best if you intend to have your device read via TTS but quite amicable to reading on screen. There is also much historical supplements/ editorial follow on (half the length) and a very deep reference to Shakespeare's English. I can't think of anything more to ask off the book.

With regard to the story: Funny :-). Can't say that I agree with the method of taming but admit, a shrew is a shrew and a comedy is a comedy. That's how I chose to view it.

It's Shakespeare. I'm not going to dare review his work. The extras are a nice touch with editorials and historical references which helps in the reading especially if you are not used to old English. A classic worth having as a book rather than an electronic version.
  • Coiron
This is a fabulous accounting of the history of THE TAMING OF THE SHREW in interpretation and production... It is very illuminating in how certain sections @ Petruchio's house have been cut, interpreted and played. Extremely enlightening in various combinations of Kates and Petruchios under the guidance of the great directors of Europe, UK and USA.. A useful aid in discovering one's own interpretation of the low comedic scenes. A lovely dramaturgical history. Very helpful as well in explaining textual flaws, copiers' errors and how reactions and relationships work between characters in staging and blocking.

I really haven't used this Edition. I actually found it inconvenient to carry around each individual play in a separate book. Personally, I was very surprised about this. I think this may be because sometimes my class only spends one class session on some of the plays. We are reading every comedy and every history. :-)
It's Shakespeare; who are we to critique the writing?

Although it's been more than 40 years since I graduated with a degree in English and I've retired from a non-literary career in government, I still read Shakespeare on a regular basis. I'm updating my collection with volumes that will fit into my backpack for travel. This edition meets my needs perfectly.
