Making Sense of Shakespeare
This study undertakes to bring Shakespearean scholars and students alive to reading the plays and poetry with a much higher engagement of physical sense, body, and sense imagination than that to which we are usually accustomed. It builds upon a broadly based investigation of scientific literature concerning bodily perceptions and responses. Making Sense of Shakespeare also demonstrates its approach to reading and provides practical suggestions for students and teachers in pursuing sense reading.
