Francis Bacon’s essays are notably recognized as an important progress in English prose. His writings are marked with clarity, brevity preciseness and substance. Among his strategies in developing balance in his essays is by concealing his own opinion within contradicting choices.
Bacon appears before the reader in these essays not in the character of a scientist or philosopher, but as a man of the world. We may call him “a citizen of the world” a term which he himself has used in one place in these essays, but for the fact that he is too much an English man, a protestant Englishman, and an Elizabethan Jacobean Englishman.
