About this book

An investigation of the many ways that Shakespeare uses the defiant voice of the shrew. Kamaralli explores how modern performance practice negotiates the possibilities for staging these characters who refuse to conform to standards of acceptable behaviour for women, but are among Shakespeare's bravest, wisest and most vivid creations.
