How to Read “The Taming of the Shrew”

$99.00

The Taming of the Shrew may be Shakespeare’s most misunderstood play! Angelina Stanford will lead you through Elizabethan Cosmology, the form of the play, the tradition of the taming of the shrew stock plot, the sources of the play, and much more so that you too can read the play as the original audience understood it.

Discover how this play is NOT about what you think it is and learn how to read Shakespeare within the literary and intellectual tradition that opens up all his plays.

This is a five session intensive class, complete with discussion forum. Reading schedule and source materials will be posted on Canvas. Please read this short play once through before the class begins.

$99. September 5th-9th, 11:00 AM-12:30 PM ET. Available Live or Later.

NOTE: This is the same material covered in Angelina’s How to Read Literature. This course is not for people taking that class.

 

What others have said about Angelina’s teaching of Taming of the Shrew:

“Reading Taming of the Shrew with Angelina brought together all of the principles she teaches in How to Read Literature (class). I learned to listen to what Shakespeare said and what he meant by it. Today we read him through all sorts of different lenses but nobody ever stops to ask, “Is this what he actually said?” Angelina does! What is medieval cosmology? What are the stories that Shakespeare knew? Angelina didn’t block the way but swung the door wide open so I could enter into the story of Taming of the Shrew. This book changed me and I am incredibly grateful for Angelina as my teacher and guide!” – Kendra H.

“This class was phenomenal! It really helped me to break down the “why” behind the negative views associated with this play and understand how to read it properly; meaning, in the context of how it was presented in the Elizabethan era. Angelina synthesizes the material in a way that draws you into the details of the story but also helps you see the bigger picture of what Shakespeare’s doing. The class not only covers the play, but a deeper understanding of the forms and images found in all stories, how to read in the literary tradition, and the life and imagination of Shakespeare.

Also, I was so relieved that this was a lecture-based class unlike other classes I’ve encountered that fill much of their time with student discussions- Angelina knows her stuff and gives you more than your money’s worth in content. Highly recommend to students, professors, and anyone who just loves to read and wants to go deeper in their love of story.

“Angelina’s teachings bring in the literary and historical contexts so that we can understand the story on its own terms and recognize its genius. She cuts through modern assumptions, shows how Shakespeare was playing with forms, and unveils layers of meaning. Her teaching on Taming of the Shrew was my favorite from her How to Read Literature class because it made me fall more in love with this play and showed me how to read well. She took this play from delightful entertainment to a journey of my soul.” – Heather G.
