Access from EThOS:
My thesis analyses the journey that The Taming of the Shrew has made on screen. It is arranged with a broad sense of chronology but it does group different versions generically. The argument is led by inquiry into the notion of the 'frame'. Stage productions too often cut the Christopher Sly sequence or rework the text to include the scenes from A Shrew by way of closure. I argue that screen versions of the play are able to find a televisual or cinematic framing which parallels how Shakespeare's theatrical technique functions.
