Originally published in 1627, the year after the author’s death by his literary executor, speculation is that Bacon wrote his story in 1623 or 1624.
In this work, Bacon portrayed a vision of the future of human discovery and knowledge, expressing his aspirations and ideals for humankind. The novel depicts the creation of a utopian land where “generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendour, piety and public spirit” are the commonly held qualities of the inhabitants.
Unlike many of his other major works, Bacon wrote “The New Atlantis” in English and then had it translated into Latin, an indication that he intended it for a wider, English-speaking audience.

On The Duty of Civil Disobedience.
Extracted from a lecture at the Concord Lyceum entitled The Rights and Duties of the Individual in relation to Government, Thoreau’s classic essay was first published as Resistance to Civil Government in Aesthetic Papers in 1849. In 1866, four years after Thoreau’s death, the essay was reprinted in a collection of Thoreau’s work under the title Civil Disobedience. Today, the essay appears under the title On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, to contrast it with William Paley’s Of the Duty of Civil Obedience to which Thoreau was responding. The topics adressed in the essay had a profound influence on reformers worldwide, from Gandhi to Martin Luther King, Jr’s civil rights movement and the opposition to the Vietnam War in the United States; to recent demonstrations for civil rights in the former Soviet Union and China.
