‘In a Dream of Passion’: Introducing Hamlet and emotion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter

Abstract

The introduction offers an account of the volume’s thematic concerns and the methodologies employed therein. This volume bears potent testimony, not only to the dense complexity of Hamlet’s emotional dynamics, but also to the enduring fascination that audiences, adaptors, and academics have with what may well be Shakespeare’s moodiest play. Its chapters explore emotion in Hamlet, as well as the myriad emotions surrounding Hamlet’s debts to the medieval past, its relationship to the cultural milieu in which it was produced, its storied performance history, and its profound impact beyond the early modern era.
