Summary

Along with 1, 2, 3 Henry VI and Titus Andronicus – plays that have been at the centre of debates surrounding Shakespeare’s canon and chronology since Malone – scholars have acknowledged, or suspected, the presence of someone other than Shakespeare in The Taming of The Shrew since the 18th century. There is thus a historical consensus regarding these other collaborations, but what about The Shrew? Unlike the Henry VI plays and Titus Andronicus (and more recently Arden and Edward III) there has been no recent attempt to validate or discredit claims for collaboration in this play. This designates The Shrew as the only early play recognized by early commentators as potentially collaborative that has not yet been systematically investigated for the presence of someone other than Shakespeare.
