Shakespeare's Cosmic World View (1997)

Shakespeare lived at the dawn of modern science, as skepticism was becoming an accepted way of thinking and perceptions of the cosmos were changing. The bard adopted the standard geocentric cosmology for the mundane affairs of his plays, yet a few passages suggest he was aware of the emerging concepts of heliocentricism and the infinite universe.
