Reading Resources – The Taming of the Shrew

April 10, 2014

Our discussion of The Taming of the Shrew is coming up on Thursday, April 24, 2014! I hope you’re enjoying the play or planning to get to it soon.

To assist you as you read or as a resource to prepare for the discussion once you’re done, here are some websites that discuss The Taming of the Shrew and/or William Shakespeare:

  • Project Gutenberg – full text of the play – for free – in various formats
  • No Fear Shakespeare – read the original text of the play along side a translation in modern English
  • SparkNotes – a full host of resources on the play, including context, character analysis, a summary, and discussion questions
  • Shakespeare Online – scroll down for a list of great resources including a glossary, introduction, and discussion about the induction
  • Penguin – a teacher’s guide to the play with in-depth information
  • Royal Shakespeare Company – a discussion of the themes in the play
  • IMDb – a link to movie and TV adaptations of the play, but don’t forget 10 Things I Hate About You

Happy reading!
