This exciting new work argues for the exploration of drama as a conduit to deep emotional learning that has the ability to change the somatic identity of performers and audiences alike. Rokotnitz suggests that the preference for reciprocity exhibited by human physiological systems also extends into psychological and cognitive processes. Modeling her epistemological inquiry upon the paradigms instantiated by our biological architecture, she argues that effective knowledge acquisition and interpersonal communication rely on the ability to learn from and to trust in our bodies. Focusing on four plays by William Shakespeare, Tom Stoppard, Timberlake Wertenbaker, and Moisés Kaufman, each chapter of the book considers a different dramatic genre, historical period, philosophical context, and performance strategy, and traces in each the crucial and defining influence of bodily presence in establishing trust relations and moral accountability.

About the Author:

Naomi Rokotnitz is a lecturer in English Literature at Bar Ilan University.

Review:

"Insightful and exciting . . . a significant contribution to the relatively new field of cognitive approaches to literature and theatre." - Theatre Survey

"Rokotnitz's tremendously engaged and engaging depiction of the emotional sensitivity, caring responsibility, and sincerely educational basis of Sentimentalism, persuasively reinvigorates a singularly unfashionable rationale for behaviour and rule. The result is, at points, an exuberant exultant writing style that empathetically echoes the celebratory positivity of the play, but also the motivations of The Politics of American Actor Training, and carries the reader along in its wake. The strengths of Rokotnitz's writing style in this and the other chapters is founded in neatly interwoven precise examples and rigorous and thoughtful dissection of illuminating textual detail." - The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory

"The dexterity with which Rokotnitz structures her work, each chapter tightly interlocking with its companions to produce a fertile ground for cross-comparison and later developments of earlier ideas, evinces a sincere commitment to rigorously test the hypothesis that originally drove her inquiry ... That her analysis of embodied experience of primary emotions leads to an explication of spiritual experience undoubtedly indicates that Rokotnitz has produced a significant contribution to the body of literature on performance and cognition." - Style
