When the decoy man from Stratford died, there was a deafening silence from his contemporaries, not a word was written in commemoration of his work or his passing. Conversely, when Sir Francis Bacon – Baron Verulam of Verulam – departed, the literary world paid great homage to the true Instaurator behind the English Renaissance recorded in a 1626 book of published eulogies called “Manes Verulamiani” (Shades of Verulam).
Jono Freeman in his latest creative and entertaining video presents 10 of the Verses or Elegies from Bacon’s peers, found within this sacred and vital collection, that are in tribute to Francis Bacon as an Outstanding Poet, Dramatist and the Mask behind Shakespeare.
This Video has scenes from Grays Inn Law School in London with the beautiful Bacon Statue, the remains from the estate of the Bacon Family in Gorhambury, the Bacon Statue from St.Michael’s Church in Gorhambury right outside of St. Albans and at the very end, Jono has a moment of performance in the remains of the outdoor Roman amphitheatre in Gorhambury (Verulamium)
