Taming of the Shrew

This is a must for Shakespeare buffs or even those who want to read more Shakespeare. The glossary on the left-hand page of the dialogue is extremely helpful.

Helpful for studying

I am a college student and this really helped me study for my class. It goes by the book, doesn't skip anything major, and really helps you sort out/define characters.

A hilarious play of the battle between the sexes.

This play is one of Shakespeare's most ribald, but I enjoyed it just the same. It's lusty, earthy and somewhat farcical. It's a very popular play because it is funny and fast-moving. And Shakespeare's wordplay is at its best here. I defy anyone not to laugh out loud numerously as they read this play. It is wonderful!

Great value!

I found this guide very useful and different from other guides in that each page of text has a useful explanation with it. Other guides always have an explanation or summery at the end. I found this was very easy to use and follow and would definitely recommend it to students.

Oxford World's Classics is the best choice for Shakespeare

There are many reviews of the play below,, so I am reviewing this particular edition of tthe play. As someone reading all of Shakespeare for the second time, I am always alble to learn something from the World's Classics introduction. They are scolarly and complete and the text always has footnotes on the same page. I have tried other editions but these are the best. The Taming of the Shrew although it does contain episodes that are misogynistic to modern ears does portray a couple truly in love. As an early play Shakespeare is beginning to find his own voice.
