A special feature of the edition."
schema:description"Is its extensive annotation, which identifies Bacon's sources and allusions (in the Bible, in classical literature, and in Renaissance texts). It also provides full explanation of Bacon's vocabulary, which is as rich as Shakespeare's, but far less familiar. Detailed headnotes recreate the political and intellectual contexts in which these works were produced."
