      Lyne's book thus pursues the connection between rhetoric and cognition primarily through an examination of Shakespeare's dramatic language, particularly the speeches of Bottom, Imogen, and Othello (among others), characters whose language exhibits an affinity between "cognitive crisis and rhetorical extravagance" (9).   The third, fourth, and fifth chapters of Kinney's book deal with Shakespeare's "Rings, Bells, and Wills" respectively, emphasizing the inability of Elizabethan audiences to see these objects, and the ramifications this lack of sight has on their perception (that is, their cognition) of the play.

      Theatre, Performance and Cognition introduces readers to the key debates, areas of research, and applications of the cognitive sciences to the humanities, and to theatre and performance in particular. It features the most exciting work being done at the intersection of theatre and cognitive science, containing both selected scientific studies that have been influential in the field, each. This book examines how early modern and recently emerging theories of consciousness and cognitive science help us to re-imagine our engagements with Shakespeare in text and performance. Papers investigate the connections between states of mind, emotion, and sensation that constitute consciousness and the conditions of reception in our past and.

    Examines the essential relationship between vision, knowledge, and memory in Renaissance models of cognition as seen in Shakespeare's plays. This book explores five key objects/images in Shakespeare's plays - crowns, bells, rings, graves and ghosts - that are central to the imagination of both the playwright and the playgoers. This book provides a wide range of approaches to this challenge, covering histories of cognition, studies of early modern stage practices, textual studies, and historical phenomenology, as well as new cultural histories by some of the key proponents of this approach at the present time.

About this book Shakespeare and Cognition challenges orthodox approaches to Shakespeare by using recent psychological findings about human decision-making to analyse the unique characters that populate his plays.

It aims to find a way to reconnect readers and watchers of Shakespeare's plays to the fundamental questions that first animated them. Paul Cefalu argues that Shakespearean characters raise timely questions about the relationship between cognition and consciousness and often defy our assumptions about “normal” cognition.

The book will appeal to scholars and students interested in both the virtues and limitations of cognitive literary criticism.

Drawing on both Aristotle's Metaphysics and contemporary cognitive literary theory, Arthur F. Kinney explores five key objects/images in Shakespeare's plays – crowns, bells, rings, graves and ghosts – that. Indeed, critical fascination with Shakespeare’s mind predates by centuries the existence of cognitive science as a field of study, so it makes sense not only that cognitive science can help us understand Shakespeare’s works better, but also that Shakespeare’s works can illuminate the cognitive processes implicit in both the shaping of meaning as a writer and the apprehending of meaning as a reader.

The monograph illuminates Shakespeare’s exploration of extended cognition, recollection and remembrance at a time when the growth of printing was forcing Renaissance culture to rethink the relationship between memory and the object. This book shows how Shakespeare’s excellence as storyteller, wit and poet reflects the creative process of conceptual blending.

Cognitive theory provides a wealth of new ideas that illuminate Shakespeare, even as he illuminates them, and the theory of blending, or conceptual integration, strikingly corroborates and amplifies both classic and current insights of literary criticism.

Shakespeare's language can be analysed with technical vocabulary, but it can also seem spontaneous, strange and perplexing. This book provides readers with new ways of approaching Shakespeare's language, in particular the richly metaphorical speeches that occur at intensely dramatic moments in works including A Midsummer Night's Dream, Othello and by:   Shakespeare and Cognition examines the essential relationship between vision, knowledge, and memory in Renaissance models of cognition as seen in Shakespeare's plays.

It aims to find a way to reconnect readers and watchers of Shakespeare's plays to the fundamental questions that first animated them. Through props, Shakespeare’s characters offload, reveal and intervene in each other’s cognition, illuminating and extending their affect.

Shakespeare’s props are neither static icons nor substitutes for the body, but volatile, malleable, and dangerously exposed extensions of Author: Sophie Duncan.

Shakespeare’s Sonnets are in fact an ideal place to pursue this possibility. They are frequently driven by metaphors (expanded into conceits), they face repeating cognitive crises (how to handle the young man and the dark lady and the emotional turmoil they cause), and they are vividly voiced by a speaker who often takes a strong position.
