Anne Tyler’s "Vinegar Girl" (2016) is a rewriting of "The Taming of the Shrew" published as part of the Hogarth Shakespeare Project, which “sees Shakespeare’s works retold by acclaimed and bestselling novelists of today”. Actually, in spite of the many intriguing parallels, this novel presents no real “shrew” and no real “taming”. As this article argues, Tayler offers instead a female-friendly version of the play that tackles key issues in feminist thinking and criticism.

Abstract

Anne Tyler’s "Vinegar Girl" (2016) is a rewriting of "The Taming of the Shrew" published as part of the Hogarth Shakespeare Project, which “sees Shakespeare’s works retold by acclaimed and bestselling novelists of today”. Actually, in spite of the many intriguing parallels, this novel presents no real “shrew” and no real “taming”. As this article argues, Tayler offers instead a female-friendly version of the play that tackles key issues in feminist thinking and criticism.
