Book Description

Nov. 5 2002 0743452976 978-0743452977
Renowned as Shakespeare's most boisterous comedy, The Taming of the Shrew is the tale of two young men -- the hopeful Lucentio and the worldly Petruchio -- and the two sisters they meet in Padua. Lucentio falls in love with Bianca, the apparently ideal younger daughter of the wealthy Baptista Minola. But before they can marry, Bianca's formidable elder sister, Katherine, must be wed. Petruchio, interested only in the huge dowry, arranges to marry Katherine -- against her will -- and enters into a battle of the sexes that has endured as one of Shakespeare's most enjoyable works.

About the Author

William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England’s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children—their older daughter, Susanna, and the twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare’s working life was spent, not in Stratford, but in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He had a successful career in London as a playwright and actor and was a shareholder in the acting company the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, later known as the King’s Men. He produced most of his plays between 1589 and 1613. Sometime between 1610 and 1613, Shakespeare is thought to have retired from the stage and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Excellent student resource" Feb. 8 2012

It's just the text of the play. Which is fine, but don't tell people it's "newly annotated edition-excellent student resource" when that just isn't there.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not the most readable layout Dec 8 2011
By K. Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I did not actually buy this edition, because I downloaded the sample and decided that it would be too difficult to read. Download the sample and decide for yourself, but there are other versions out there that are much better typeset. Still, not the worst I've seen, hence two stars.
