Summary
"Shakespeare explored the father-daughter relationship again and again, often featuring a widower with an adolescent daughter who has spent most of her life under her father's control. The plays usually begin when the daughter is on the verge of womanhood and eager to make her own decisions, especially in matters of the heart."--Jacket
