Shakespearean thinking is always dynamic: thinking that happens in the living moment of its performance, in quickly passing process.¿This book offers a model of human mentality that can be shown through the dense immediacy of dramatic thinking, as embodied above all in Shakespeare's working method.¿ Shakespeare Thinking discusses the positioning of Shakespeare as the paradigm of fully human mental creativity from the Romantics to the latest neurological experiments which show that Shakespeare can reveal new understandings of the hard-wiring of the human brain, and the sheer sudden electricity of its synaptic development.

Editorial Reviews

"Shakespeare Thinking is a powerful plea for criticism to engage afresh with Shakespeare's language as the 'quick forge' of a vision that defies paraphrase or synopsis. An urgent, absorbing polemic and a compelling quest to crack the plays' unique poetic code." - Professor Kiernan Ryan, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
