  1. Frontier The Discovery of a Land, 2023 Just aired on TV here in Australia. Only relevant in that it shows what became of Bacon's vision of The New Atlantis.
  2. What an amazing visionary statement. From a conventional perspective, it makes little sense: The bird of wonder dies-the maiden phoenix- Her ashes new create another heir What did audiences in 1613 make of the 'prophecy' that the late Queen Elizabeth - the "maiden Phoenix" - would have an heir? Under the original title, "All is True", this is the play that famously burnt down the Globe Theatre. During a performance of Henry VIII at the Globe Theatre in 1613, a cannon shot employed for special effects ignited the theatre's thatched roof (and the beams), burning the original Globe building to the ground. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_VIII_(play) But who was John Fletcher who supposedly wrote in collaboration with Shakespeare/Bacon? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Fletcher_(playwright)
  3. Yours for only $1500: https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30334475065&searchurl=fe%3Don%26sortby%3D17%26tn%3Dfrancis%2Bbacon%2Bverulam&cm_sp=snippet-_-srp2-_-title6 See also: https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?bsi=30&fe=on&sortby=17&tn=francis+bacon+verulam&prevpage=1
  4. Cornelii Giselberti Plempii Amsterodamum monogrammon https://archive.org/details/corneliigiselber00plem/page/122/mode/2up So nice to look at Plempii's Emblems again. Surreal in the best sense. Here is one for the Phoenixes. A throne-commode? Printers at work: The self and the other... Lord Verulam? The real author will ascend and the mask will fall.
  5. Thanks Yann. The mis-numbering of emblem 33 must be deliberate, surely. And indeed it resembles Nicholas Stone's sculpture, except his head is resting on his right arm in the emblem. Well spotted.
  6. Hi A Phoenix As far as I can tell "lachimo" and "larman' are neither in my dictionary nor explained online.
  7. "I am more interested in debunking ideas..." - you are a long way off debunking anything because you never provide relevant references, only personal opinion. There are 17 personal pronouns ("I") in the 14 lines above.
