For Faust Sake: The Marlowe-Bacon Problem

by Jono Freedman

Jono Freeman recruits Francis St Alban and his Knights of the Helmet, in an effort to help bring an end to this reign of literary phrenesis within the authorship debate…by offering a new way to examine the birth of the Elizabethan Renaissance in literature. As with Mr Wm Shaxper, Marlowe was another of Sir Francis Bacon’s masks – the text of Dr Faustus is used here as a case study for the question of authorship.
