Hamlet's Transformation (1997)

According to king Claudius, prince Hamlet suffers from a transformation of his inner and outer self. This refers to the prince, who personifies the New Astronomy comprising a heliocentric planetary system and an infinite universe. Claudius personifies the bounded geocentric model of his namesake Ptolemy, which is why he summons Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to assist him in restoring Hamlet's health, where the two courtiers who bear the names of the great-great-grandparents of Tycho Brahe, represent that astronomer's version of a bounded geocentric model. https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/#abs/1997AAS...191.3501U/abstract
