This is an analysis of William Shakespeare's play, "The Taming of the Shrew". It assesses the text of the folio in the light of recent theories, reassessing the play as problematic in terms of the dramatic interpretation of the language. The study includes an account of the play as a stage event and it characterizes the play as humorous, conflict-filled, full of sexual tension and dramatically brilliant. In addition, the book argues the issues of the play which relate to radical feminism, in the context of the 16th-century sex-war which reached its height in the 1590's when not only literature but also a full scale pamphlet war raged between feminists and anti-feminists.
