It seems incredible that so little is generally known about one who was, conceivably, one of the greatest of the Elizabethans. Thomas Hariot was a friend of Sir Walter Ralegh, Sir Francis Drake, and Christopher Marlowe, and at various stages in his life was involved with many of the Elizabethans whose names and works are mightily known to us. And yet, in spite of his associations, traces of Thomas Hariot are indeed all that history provides. Consequently, Muriel Rukeyser embarked on a search more arduous than any Quest for Corvo when she began writing about him. What have her researches-from Alnwick Castle to Syon House, from Petworth to Sherborne, to Medina Sidonia, from the Tower of London to the Bank of England, from Carmarthen to the Outer Banks-revealed? A lot-and a little. That Hariot was one of the first English explorers of the New World-he went on the 1585 expedition, and lived a year in Virginia, exploring and recording that unknown wilderness. Th?t he w c a pioneer in optics, crystallography, 1,ic-La~lurgy, and astronomy. That he wab wiLli Drake at Cadiz; that he was with Ralegh in the Tower (where he helped him to write the History of the World), and that he was a member of Henry Percy, ninth Earl of Northumberland's household during the Gunpowder Plot. That he corresponded with Kepler, and was probably the originator of Descartes' algebra. That his friendship with Marlowe was cited by the court in its accusation of blasphemy against the playwright and poet, and that he was named as a mentor and influence in the judgement of the court against Ralegh.
