Synopsis: Prefatory Note In this volume of largely new essays, which builds on the 1971 Francis Bacon issue of Studies in the Literary Imagination edited by Professor William A. Sessions, we see that the Georgia State Literary Studies Series is providing a forum for scholars which should assist still another generation into the future. Just as a journal serves as a testing ground for ideas allowing scholars immediate access to current research, a book provides a kind of permanence-a suggestion of finality. Yet all good scholarship must build on earlier thinking and Bacon's writing continues to teach us; thus, the work of this philosophical writer, while continuing to stimulate new investigations generation by generation, also clearly reflects Bacon's own original and enduring strength. This volume, which includes three essays from the 1971 issue, accomplishes several things. It stands as a book of new scholarship which is both a testament to Bacon's vast enterprise and a documentation of the present moment's developing interest in a figure who is important as philosopher, thinker, and discoverer. In the range and erudition of the essays in this book we see demonstrated that what may appear to be old can be made new. Scholars immersed in fields ranging from the classics to Elizabethan politics, as well as today's contemporary theory make Bacon come alive. His writings, examined by scholars from Great Britain, France, South Africa, and the United States, remind us that the work of understanding how mind and language feed one another will never be completed. Yet in the ways that, for example, Nature, Order, Politics, Imagery, and Science are examined, we are made aware of the scholar's need to keep asking questions, and thereby to clarify still larger questions. This book reflects all these things...Victor A. Kramer General Editor Georgia State Literary Studies Georgia State University
