Single fathers raising daughters is a feature in many of Shakespeare’s plays. It reflected the unfortunate reality that many women died in child birth. It also helped drive narratives stemming from these fathers being unsure of how to tackle the challenge of parenting their daughters in a society that wasn’t built to support such relationships, or that offered women much in the way of opportunity. On this episode of the Quality Time podcast, Lee Lewis is joined by John McNeil and Claudia Ware to discuss the father/daughter relationships in Taming of the Shrew.
