Although Bacons essays are often compared to the works ofclassic theoreticians and philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle, his contemporary critics as well as modern ones insist on their special importance, value and depth. Some even consider Bacon to be the father of the essay form which has flourished after the publication of his volume. Today, The Essays of Francis Bacon is one of the most quoted works of the English tongue. The readers will discover that many of Bacons fragments have become popular proverbs and aphorisms that still survive in the modern Anglophone world.
