Dr. Forsyth works on Shakespeare, Fletcher, and other early modern dramatists. She is most interested in the intersection of the physical and the emotional in early modern writing as well as tragicomedy, editorial theory and practice, stylometric approaches to authorship attribution, especially in cases of collaboration, and conditions of early modern dramatic authorship and textual production. She is the textual editor of Henry 6, Part 1 (Norton Shakespeare, 3rd edition) and has recently published “Cutting Words and Healing Wounds: Friendship and Violence in Early Modern Drama,” which appeared in Violent Masculinities (Palgrave, 2013). She is currently studying the kiss in early modern drama and poetry.
