- One of the earlest champions of language in Shakespeare's time was Thomas Wilson. In The Arte of Rhetoric (1553) he declares that "Suche force hath the tongue, and such is the power of eloquence and reason, that most men are forced euen to yelde in that, whiche most standeth againste their will." Such ideas were not original and have been restated over the decades. We have not substantially bettered these concepts in the twenty-first century, but we have deepened our knowledge of just how such poetic language comes to be; psychology, linguistics, physics, and neuroscience have all come into confluence, showing us how the human brain works- not just ours, but those of Shakespeare and his contemporaries.
