... safety, but also by its guidance found opportunity to avenge his father. By this skillful defence of himself, and strenuous revenge for his parent, "he has left it doubtful whether we are to think more of his wit or his bravery. It is a far cry from Saxo's tale and its uncouth setting to the Renaissance refinements of Shakespeare. This is nowhere more obvious than in the scene in the Queen's hall, with its heaped straw 19 on the floor, its simmering caldrons, its open sewer, and the crude manner of disposing of "Polonius," all befitting the rude Middle Ages. The whole sad, somber story of the lonely orphan prince is turned ...
22. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Four [Books]
... and Gabriel p.325Section 47- Lucifer 5 p.353Notes and Corrections for Part 4 Introductory Remarks. By way of an introduction to this part of my essay I offer the reader a novel dual- hypothesis that bears useful comparison with V's dual-hypothesis of global catastrophism and collective amnesia. My own hypothesis is as follows: first, that Shakespeare had an obsession with the colour yellow; second, that he was embarrassed by his obsession and tried as far as possible to suppress it, disguise it, and ultimately hide' from it. There is a great deal of evidence' for the first part of my hypothesis. There are the famous yellow stockings in Twelfth Night, ...
23. Appendix I: About the Authors [Books]
... interested, and, I think, the aspect of Dr. Velikovsky's theories, which particularly attracts people in literary disciplines, Dr. Wolfe was educated at McGill University and later at Bristol University where he took a Ph.D . in Drama; he is presently Professeur assistant, Department d'études anglaises, l'Université de Montréal; he teaches there Shakespeare and Drama, in particular, and his contemplation of Velikovsky's theories over the years has led to the formation of a theory about the sources of art, based particularly in his study of Shakespeare. And so I would like you to welcome Dr. Irving Wolfe. - LR. Ricou (The University of Lethbridge) George Grinnell It ...

26. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... took it home, and started to read it; and the reaction was instantaneously positive: I was tremendously excited. I found that I would come across an idea on a certain page and suddenly all kinds of connections would start coming into my head. "Pretty soon, I found that as I was preparing lectures (my specialty is Shakespeare) I suddenly began to see things that I thought had some bearing on Velikovsky. I didn't know what to make of these; but I made notes; and after a while I would have words underlined and notes: "Is this a catastrophic memory?" and suddenly I began to see patterns in things; and it struck ...
27. Theomachy in the Theater: on the Fringes of the Collective Amnesia [Journals] [Kronos]
... a ritual of masochistic penitence. With reference to the above discussion, it is instructively worthwhile to momentarily digress and compare the twentieth century Japanese cinematic canvases, replete with assorted monsters, to the work of the eighteenth century master Fuseli. "A German acquaintance of [the 1770s] described him as extreme in everything - Shakespeare's painter. ' Shakespeare and Michelangelo were indeed his twin gods; he even visualized a Sistine chapel with Michelangelo's figures transformed into Shakespearean characters, where the Sublime would be the common denominator for classic' and Gothic' Romanticism."(10) . . . Fuseli's most impressive picture - famous ever since its appearance in 1782 - is the Nightmare (Detroit ...
28. Asimov's Guide to the Velikovsky Affair [Journals] [Kronos]
... Isaac Asimov: "In this technological century, we need an interface between science and the public, and nobody can do that job as well as Asimov. He's the great explainer of the age." And Asimov, author of eight or nine score books lately tending toward such titles as Asimov's Guide to the Bible, Asimov's Guide to Shakespeare, and Asimov's Guide to Science, publisher of Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, undoubtedly agrees; he readily admits to being a genius. But interfacer Asimov gives this much in return: "The most effective critic of Velikovsky is, in my opinion, Cornell astronomer Carl Sagan, and as far as I know, he [supposedly ...

30. Nor Heaven Nor Earth Have Been at Peace: The Contemporary Foundations of Shakespeare's Cataclysmic Imagery (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... whole Earth, was being subjected to a series of unusual gravitational stresses, seen by the Elizabethans as intimately bound up with the appearance of comets and blazing stars. In fact, among the more horrible of phenomena at this time was a series of earthquakes and strange earth movements which occurred between 1551 and 1602 and are memorialised not only by Shakespeare but by such diverse writers as Donne and Chapman. Stowe makes a brief reference to the 25 May, 1551 quake in Southerey and also to quakes in September, 1563 (Lincolne and Northampshire), 26 February, 1575 (Yorke, Worcester, Gloucester, and Hereford), and 24 December, 1601 in London itself, following ...
