This volume of essays on Bacon's "The New Atlantis" - read by some as a seminal work of science fiction - provides a dialogue between a range of critical perspectives, encompassing cultural history, history of science, literature and politics of early modern culture, incorporating the practical and visionary, utility and utopia. The text explores complex location within "The New Atlantis" and its negotiations with past and present cultural debates. It also considers the use of rhetoric, narrative content, political and ethical implications, representation of gender, the role and politics of censorship, Jewish toleration and colonialism.
