The Taming of the Shrewby Fredi Olster, Rick Hamilton
Conceived and written by two classically trained American stage actors, this workbook in Smith & Kraus' Discovering Shakespeare Series is a student's gateway to understanding Shakespeare. The side-by-side presentation of the original language and a "translation" into the vernacular allows the student to quickly understand and appreciate the play. There is accompanying instruction about Shakespearean English, character analysis, and performance information.
