William Shakespeare'And there's the humor of it': Shakespeare and the four humors

Examine the intersection of medical theory and literature with the exhibition "And there’s the humor of it": Shakespeare and the four humors. These four bodily humors—blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm—were understood by Shakespeare, and generations before him, to define people’s physical and mental health, and to determine individual’s personality, as well. See this exhibition to learn more about the language of the four humors and their influence in Shakespeare’s plays.
