Graham Paul might want to look at Frances Yates' classic study of
*Giordano Burno and the Mermetic Tradition*.  There's material on
Bruno's visit to England and the relationships around that in Hilary
Gatti, *The Renaissance Drama of Knowledge* and in M. C. Bradbrook's
*The School of Night*.

It seems to me that it would quite difficult to show convincingly that
the neoplatonism in Shakespeare can be specifically associated with the
work of Bruno or any other Renaissance thinker-that it is anything more
than the neoplatonism one finds in virtually all the sonneteers-like
stoic morality-the common intellectual property and idiom of virtually
all literate people in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
