Drew Whitehead asked about a version of The Shrew which returns to the
induction at the end.  He is probably thinking of "A Shrew," which I
think is a bad quarto, not an ur-Shrew.  This version keeps Sly in the
play at various points throughout. It ends with a sort of Sly epilogue
(pun intended) in which Christopher announces his intention to return
home and tame his own wife as he had seen it done in his "dream."  This
is black humor indeed.  The Riverside sets out the additional Sly
episodes from A Shrew in the text notes.

The new Bedford edition of Shakespeare (ed. Greenblatt) contains the
variant endings for Taming of the Shrew-so does the single-play edition
edited by Fran Dolan.
