Baconiana – The Online Journal of the Francis Bacon Society
Sujet : Since 1886, the Society has engaged in a collective effort to understand the unique power and resonance of Elizabethan literature and life. In particular it has concentrated on the Shakespeare writings, and Bacon’s philosophy and public work. Fascinated by the relationship between the biographies and writings of other Elizabethans like John Dee, Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Philip Sidney, the Society is obliged to take the Shakespeare authorship question more seriously than those who limit themselves to a purely literary approach to the texts and history of the renaissance. For over a century, Baconian research has mainly been presented through the journal Baconiana. A unique publication, Baconiana has contained articles ranging from superb amateur scholarship to entertaining historical speculation. Any enthusiast of the English renaissance, and its European context, will be fascinated by the range of articles concerning such diverse subjects as Jacobean politics, secret religious societies, the history of cryptography, rare emblem books and Elizabethan London.
