    SPIC HALL
    BY
    S. NEHRU
  • 2. FRANCIS BACON
    AS A PHILOSOPHER BACON IS ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF MODERN SYSTEMATIC THOUGHT
    HIS ESSAYS IS AN APPENDIX TO HIS LONGER WORKS, ESPECIALLY THE ADVANCEMENT OF LEARNING
    HIS ESSAYS PROVIDE A PRACTICAL EVERYDAY PHILOSOPHY OF THE LIFE OF HIS OWN WORLD
    IN ITS THREE VERSIONS THE WORK SHOWS THE DEVELOPMENT OF BACON’S ENGLISH STYLE
  • 3. FRANCIS BACON
    IN THE FIRST EDITION THE STYLE IS CRISP, DETACHED AND EPIGRAMMATIC , CONVEYING THE IMPRESSION THAT EACH ESSAY HAS ARISEN FROM SOME HAPPY THOUGHT OR PHRASE, AROUND WHICH OTHER PITHY STATEMENTS ARE AGGLOMERATED
  • 4. FRANCIS BACON
    IN THE LATER EDITIONS THE IDEAS ARE EXPANDED, THE EXPRESSION LOSES ITS SPIKY POINTEDNESS
    IN THE END THERE IS AN APPROACH TO A FREER MIDDLE STYLE
    IN CHOICE OF SUBJECT AND APPROACH THEY REVEAL HIS BREADTH OF INTELLECT, HIS WORLDLY WISDOM, HIS CONCERN WITH PUBLIC AND MATERIAL ADVANCEMENT
  • 5. FRANCIS BACON
    THEY ARE IMPERSONAL, OBJECTIVE, AND ORDERLY IN THOUGHT, AND REFLECT A COOL, SCIENTIFIC DETACHMENT
    THEY ARE WRITTEN IN THE LANGUAGE OF ORDINARY MEN, AND THE IMAGERY IS THAT OF EVERYDAY LIFE
    THE ESSAYS ARE BRIEF AND FULL OF CONDENSED, WEIGHTY AUTHENTICAL SENTENCES, WHICH HAVE THE QUALITIES OF PROVERBIAL EXPRESSIONS
  • 6. FRANCIS BACON
    EXPRESSIONS ARE NOTABLE FOR THEIR PRECISION AND CLARITY OF PHRASING
    MANY HAVE STRIKING OPENINGS
  • 7. OF LOVE
    Bacon presents the merits and demerits of love in his essay, “Of Love”.
    Love plays rather a great role in stage than in real life
    Having love as a theme many plays were produced mostly comedies and also few tragedies
  • 8. OF LOVE
    But love causes more trouble in real life
    Lovemay drive a man away from his career as it happened in the case of Antony
    Love can also drive a man mad with jealousy as in the case of Othello
    In real life none has lost his mental balance for the sake of love
  • 9. OF LOVE
    There were exceptions like Antony and Claudius (Wiseman of Rome)
    Bacon says that it is foolish to kneel before a lady for the sake of love
    He says that there are more mysteries to be unravelled about mankind
  • 10. OF LOVE
    Love distorts men’s judgement of things
    Men indulge in flattery once they fall in love
    Their flattery would be worse than that of self-flattery.
    One cannot love and one cannot be wise at the same time
    Man should keep vigil against the passion of love
    . A lover may not only lose other things for the sake of love but also loses love
  • 11. OF LOVE
    In spite of all the sacrifice it may defeat its own object
    Paris lost everything for Helen but finally he lost Helen
    Love is directly proportional to both prosperity and adversity
    Love is the child of folly
    If it cannot be resisted that should be kept within limits
    It may ruin one’s life
  • 12. OF LOVE
    For soldiers drinking and loving are the same because it is an alibi for dangers which they are exposed
    A man becomes kind hearted if he loves a large number of people
    Married love is good
    Love of friends is great
    Immoral love only debases human value
