“‘Do I Dream?’ Chaucerian Skepticism in _The Taming of the Shrew_”

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

_The Taming of the Shrew_, like one of its underappreciated sources, Chaucer's _House of Fame_, uses an open-ended, broken framing fiction to parody and offer a skeptical perspective on the events it depicts; _Shrew_'s technologies of taming and training thus offer a fantasy of male domination, triggerring skepticism about Kate’s final speech about female submission.
