520    "William Shakespeare lived at a remarkable time--a period 
       we now recognize as the first phase of the Scientific 
       Revolution. New ideas were transforming Western thought, 
       the medieval was giving way to the modern, and the work of
       a few key figures hinted at the brave new world to come: 
       The methodical and rational Galileo, the skeptical 
       Montaigne, and--as Falk convincingly argues--Shakespeare, 
       who observed human nature just as intently as the 
       astronomers who studied the night sky. In The Science of 
       Shakespeare, we meet a colorful cast of Renaissance 
       thinkers, including Thomas Digges, who published the first
       English account of the "new astronomy" and lived in the 
       same neighborhood as Shakespeare; Thomas Harriot--
       "England's Galileo"--Who aimed a telescope at the night 
       sky months ahead of his Italian counterpart; and Danish 
       astronomer Tycho Brahe, whose observatory-castle stood 
       within sight of Elsinore, chosen by Shakespeare as the 
       setting for Hamlet--and whose family crest happened to 
       include the names "Rosencrans" and "Guildensteren." And 
       then there's Galileo himself: As Falk shows, his 
       telescopic observations may have influenced one of 
       Shakespeare's final works. Dan Falk's The Science of 
       Shakespeare explores the connections between the famous 
       playwright and the beginnings of the Scientific Revolution
       --and how, together, they changed the world forever"--
