This is the first volume of essays on Bacon's The New Atlantis, a key text of Early Modern culture, incorporating the practical and visionary, utility and utopia - read by some as a seminal work of science fiction.

This volume of eight new essays by leading scholars provides a stimulating dialogue between a range of critical perspectives. Encompassing the fields of cultural history, history of science, literature, and politics, the collection explores The New Atlantis' complex location within Bacon's oeuvre and its negotiations with cultural debates of the past and present. Often regarded as the apotheosis of Bacon's ideas through its depiction of an advanced “scientific” society, it is also read as a seminal work of science fiction.
