This review article looks at four recent publications on Shakespeare and emotion, exploring recent developments in the field and considering how recent scholars have responded to work by Gail Kern Paster and others. It argues that although the current ‘affective turn’ has in some ways moved away from its medical humanities roots and even at times away from the body, many of these studies can be seen as continuations rather than correctives to her work.
