Abstract

Abstract Analysing and discussing Shakespeare's works still present an immense challenge and undertaking not only to literary critics, but also to psychologists, philosophers, politicians, artists, language and literature teachers and their students, etc. Four centuries after Shakespeare's death his fame and popularity still have neither subsided nor lost their intensity. Hence, it is no exaggeration to state that his plays literally transcend time and culture and are rightfully called immortal or 'of all time'. This certainly could be attributed to his investing profusely in diverse and solid building blocks such as, for instance, an innovative language use while compiling his opulent corpus of literary works. The present paper aims to deal with one aspect of his works which without doubt contributes greatly to the timelessness of his works – the immaculate depiction of a wide range of human emotions which are an inextricable segment of his full-fledged characters. The point we purpose to make is that while modern men and women can certainly boast about evolving and progressing in every conceivable sense of the word, yet, they can very closely and distinctly relate to their distant predecessors when it comes to the realm of emotions they experience and the ways in which they normally manifest them. Keywords: Shakespeare, plays, emotions, timelessness
