    Book Description

    From the Royal Shakespeare Company -- a fresh new edition of Shakespeare's controversial comedy of the war between the sexes THIS EDITION INCLUDES: / An illuminating introduction to The Taming of the Shrew by award-winning scholar Jonathan Bate / The play - with clear and authoritative explanatory notes on each page / A helpful scene-by-scene analysis and key facts about the play / An introduction to Shakespeare's career and the Elizabethan theatre / A rich exploration of approaches to staging the play featuring photographs of key productions The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This unique edition presents a historical overview of The Taming of the Shrew in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with two leading directors and an actress - Gregory Doran, Phyllida Lloyd and Michelle Gomez -- so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible, a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death. Ideal for students, theatre-goers, actors and general readers, the RSC Shakespeare plays offer an accessible and contemporary approach to reading and rediscovering Shakespeare's works for the twenty-first century.
