About the Authors
  • Shakespeare and Emotion devotes sustained attention to the emotions as a novel way of exploring Shakespeare's works in their original contexts. A variety of disciplinary approaches drawn from literary, theatrical, historical, cultural and film studies brings the recent upsurge of interest in affect into conversation with some of the most urgent debates in Shakespeare studies. The volume provides both a comprehensive account of the current state of scholarship and a speculative forum for new research. Its chapters outline some important contexts for understanding Shakespeare's creativity through an emotional lens – from religion, rhetoric, and medicine, to language, acting and Bollywood – and offer a range of case studies which reveal particular emotions at work. Considering emotional and passionate experience as an animating and sometimes alienating force within the plays and poems, the volume highlights the continuing importance of Shakespeare today: for our sense of who we are and who we might become.

    • Explores emotional experience as a central feature of Shakespeare's works, offering innovative approaches to the plays and poems
    • Forges new insights into the vibrant field of the early modern history of the emotions
    • Builds on Shakespeare's enduring legacy to make links between past and present emotional experience, considering the real-world benefit of Shakespeare's creativity for today's geo-political realities
