This work offers a psychological investigation of the use of emotive language in Shakespeare's drama. Focusing on the Roman tragedies, the author applies findings from her "Dictionary of Affect in Language", which classified words into categories indicating the sort of emotion that they imply, to the plays to produce a comparison of the dramatic language to the modern English vocabulary.
Dr. Cynthia M. Whissell is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the Laurentian University. She received her Ph.D. in Psychology from Purdue University.
