1. Velikovsky in Shakespeare [Articles]
... Velikovsky in Shakespeare Irving Wolfe In this paper, I shall apply the gist of Dr. Velikovsky's theories, particularly these concerning the events in the skies from 780 to 640 B.C ., to a play by William Shakespeare. I will try to demonstrate that Antony and Cleopatra appears to contain a significant number of Velikovskian overtones, images and allusions, too significant in frequency and usage to be the result of chance or convention. They are a distinctive element in the artistic whole. Then, on the basis of this evidence, I will offer my own theory about the nature of enduring narrative art, about what makes a great artist create and how he does it ...

3. Shakespeare, Three Generations After Copernicus. Ch.4 Poets And Visionaries (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents In later ages, in different places and cultures, there appears a visionary, a poet: suddenly, it is as if a door opens before him, with a light shining through, and he sees the past. Shakespeare, Three Generations After Copernicus On February 17, 1600, Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake in Rome. Before he died for his theological and astronomical heresies, he spent seven years in the prison of the Holy Inquisition in Venice and Rome. And before that he spent time in England trying to convince the great of the Elizabethan kingdom of the truth ...
4. "The Seasons Alter": Catastrophism in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Continued) [Journals] [Kronos]
... the one hand, he is the base or ground upon which the action occurs, symbolizing the Earth in its stable form, mature love, wise attraction, a figure . . . representing a harmony and order in civil government which reflects the harmony and order of nature.(33) Such is not the whole picture, however. Shakespeare would undoubtedly have read of Theseus in Plutarch's Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans, translated by Sir Thomas North. There, he would have found Theseus linked with a Roman figure, as were all the Greeks in the book. In this case, Plutarch compares Theseus with Romulus, best known as the founder of Rome and representative ...
5. "The Seasons Alter": Catastrophism in A Midsummer Night's Dream [Journals] [Kronos]
... the revels Go, Philostrate, Stir up the Athenian youth to merriments, Awake the pert and nimble spirit of mirth, Turn melancholy forth to funerals; The pale companion is not for our pomp. (1 .1 11-15.) In a country like Elizabethan England, which was given to dazzling and elaborate pageantry on state occasions, Shakespeare writes a play in which, four days before a royal marriage, the monarch must plead for youth to be merry, mirth to be awakened, and melancholy to be thrown out as more suitable to funerals. Things are not well in Athens. There is special significance, however, to the malaise of the city. It is ...

7. Astrophysicist Finds New Scientific Meaning in Hamlet [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... , Canada, offers a new interpretation of Shakespeare's play Hamlet. The paper, by Peter D. Usher, professor of astronomy and astrophysics at Penn State, presents evidence that Hamlet is "an allegory for the competition between the cosmological models of Thomas Digges of England and Tycho Brahe of Denmark." Usher says the paper is significant because Shakespeare favours the Diggesian model, which is the forerunner of modern cosmology. "As early as 1601, Shakespeare anticipated the new universal order and humankind's position in it," Usher states. "The play therefore manifests an astronomical cosmology that is no less magnificent than its literary and philosophical counterparts." Claudius Ptolemy perfected a model of the ...

... can be little doubt that Krainer's studies of Sumer served as models of scholarship for Feldman. Second, Feldman, from 1932 until his death, was active in the reconstruction of Elizabethan literature and history prompted by J. Thomas Looney's identification of Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, as the actual man behind the pen name, "William Shakespeare." Feldman's immense labors in the field of literature resulted in numerous articles in the International Journal of Psychoanalysis, the American Imago, the Shakespeare Fellowship Quarterly, the Shakespeare Oxford Society Newsletter, and The Bard (London), and two books, Hamlet Himself andthe yet-to-be-published Early Shakespeare;these had established him as a master literary and ...
10. Nor Heaven Nor Earth Have Been at Peace: The Contemporary Foundations of Shakespeare's Cataclysmic Imagery [Journals] [Kronos]
... , and attempted explanations almost casually proffered. Cumberland Clark, for instance, sees Shakespeare's use of the imagery of natural destruction simply as a poetic-dramatic device, since "natural phenomena are common knowledge and enter into the experience of every man, woman, and child, soothing, delighting, disturbing, terrifying..."(1 ) Shakespeare is, in short, "aware of the value of imitative uses of natural phenomena to intensify the most dramatic moments of his plot. He can so handle the elements as to harmonize them with the mental processes of his characters and strengthen the impression he desires to convey".(2 ) Caroline Spurgeon explains Shakespeare's preoccupation with such ...
