This monograph re-examines the role of emotion in "Hamlet" in the light of recent developments in cognitive science. The author examines the emotion-cognition fugue in "Hamlet", with a particular emphasis on the prince's emotional responses to physical and material phenomena, stresses the experiential aspects of ideology and scrutinizes the ways in which the fugue illuminates the complex variations in the processing of ideology. This focus also positions the play in the ongoing social drama in which Elizabethan theatre, along with ceremony, ritual, carnival and other discussions of power, played a vital role.
