Reviews for Gender and Power in Shrew-Taming Narratives, 1500-1700
'...[an] exciting collection...This rich tapestry provides what is so often lacking literary context. Whereas New Historicism focused attention on the cultural context of Shakespeare's works, scholars still too often pretend that no one else wrote on the subjects Shakespeare did. The range of texts discussed is, therefore, of great value...Highly recommended' - A. Castaldo, CHOICE
