Hamlet's Universe (2006/7)

A common perception is that Shakespeare is ignorant of, or indifferent toward the revolutions in models of the Universe that were occurring during his lifetime. This work argues otherwise. Through personifications, Shakespeare advocates a Copernican sun-centered planetary system embedded in an infinite Universe of stars as advanced by Thomas Digges in 1576.
