The Taming of a Shrew, with its alternate version of the Bianca subplot and its additional material for Sly, is accepted by Miller as an anonymous reworking of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, rather than a "bad quarto." The introduction to this modernised edition of the 1594 quarto includes textual and staging history, notes on its compositors, and a discussion of its date, and makes detailed comparisons between the texts of A Shrew and The Shrew.
