Description

The novel “New Atlantis” depicts the mythical island Bensalem, which is discovered by the crew of a European ship after they are lost in the Pacific Ocean somewhere west of Peru. The minimal plot serves the gradual unfolding of the island, its customs, but most importantly, its state-sponsored scientific institution, Salomon's House, “which house or college ... is the very eye of this kingdom.”
