Harriot, Digges, and the Ghost in "Hamlet" (1998)

"Hamlet" contains a meticulous description of attributes and accomplishments of Thomas Harriot, and argues that Leonard Digges' telescopy "rolled back the heavens." The Ghost of Old Hamlet represents Leonard Digges who at the time when "Hamlet" was written had been dead for between about 25 to 40 years. https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/#abs/1998AAS...19312005U/abstract
