Hamlet's Universe (Aventine Press, 2006/7) Public

"Hamlet's Universe" presents a new interpretation of Shakespeare's play "Hamlet" whose Second Quarto edition is dated 1604. Since my original hypothesis in 1996/7 that the play is an allegory for the chief cosmological models of the sixteenth century, several advances greatly expanded the embrace of the initial postulate. in 2006 after a decade, I thought it desirable to gather pertinent arguments into a coherent whole. Needless to say, such brand new arguments dealing with one of the greatest works of literature, and by a total outsider no less, was bound to encounter much criticism, but since I was interested in a book that would serve as a stop-gap until I could research the challenges that lay ahead, I decided to self-publish the work. Aventine Press no longer supports its availability, but since some authors have referred to the book, I thought it desirable to make it available on Scholar Sphere. There are a few errors in it, but nothing serious as far as I know.
