A Phoenix Posted July 31, 2022 Share Posted July 31, 2022 THE LITTLE KNOWN AND READ PLAYTHE MISFORTUNES OF ARTHUR (MARKING THE FIRST APPEARANCE OF BACON'S NAME IN PRINT) HIS FIRST UNACKNOWLEDGED SHAKESPEARE PLAY WHICH IS REPEATEDLY ECHOED THROUGHOUT THE SHAKESPEARE CANON. For four hundred years The Misfortunes of Arthur has been surrounded by silence and suppression. This relatively unknown historically important drama marks the first appearance of the name of the great poet-philosopher and dramatist Francis Bacon in print and is by definition unique in the canon of his acknowledged writings and marks a unique biographical and bibliographical milestone in the literary career of this great historical figure and man of letters. The important landmark drama written, performed and published in 1587-8 immediately pre-dates the Shakespearean era and is of untold importance in the history of his authorship of the Shakespeare plays. The Misfortunes of Arthur serves as a source for at least half-a-dozen of his Shakespeare plays and has moroever important and extensive links to more than half the Shakespeare canon. It is permeated with his Baconian-Shakespearean DNA whose salient themes repeatedly anticipates and finds echo throughout the whole Shakespeare canon from the first to the last. 3 https://aphoenix1.academia.edu/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrY7wzlXnZiT1Urwx7jP6fQ/videos Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
