Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew: A Commentary, Part I

Part One of Dr. White’s two-part examination of Shakespeare’s classic comedy, The Taming of the Shrew.Dr. White gives a classical definition of comedy which reminds us of our human nature, that we are but flesh and blood, and as a consequence keeps us humble.
