FRANCIS BACON'S OF LOVE, 19TH JULY

  1. 1. FRANCIS BACON’S<br />OF LOVE<br />19TH JULY 2011<br />I MA<br />IV HOUR<br />SPIC HALL<br />BY<br />S. NEHRU<br />
  2. 2. FRANCIS BACON<br />AS A PHILOSOPHER BACON IS ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF MODERN SYSTEMATIC THOUGHT<br />HIS ESSAYS IS AN APPENDIX TO HIS LONGER WORKS, ESPECIALLY THE ADVANCEMENT OF LEARNING<br />HIS ESSAYS PROVIDE A PRACTICAL EVERYDAY PHILOSOPHY OF THE LIFE OF HIS OWN WORLD<br />IN ITS THREE VERSIONS THE WORK SHOWS THE DEVELOPMENT OF BACON’S ENGLISH STYLE<br />
  3. 3. FRANCIS BACON<br />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<br />
  4. 4. FRANCIS BACON<br />IN THE LATER EDITIONS THE IDEAS ARE EXPANDED, THE EXPRESSION LOSES ITS SPIKY POINTEDNESS<br />IN THE END THERE IS AN APPROACH TO A FREER MIDDLE STYLE<br />IN CHOICE OF SUBJECT AND APPROACH THEY REVEAL HIS BREADTH OF INTELLECT, HIS WORLDLY WISDOM, HIS CONCERN WITH PUBLIC AND MATERIAL ADVANCEMENT<br />
  5. 5. FRANCIS BACON<br />THEY ARE IMPERSONAL, OBJECTIVE, AND ORDERLY IN THOUGHT, AND REFLECT A COOL, SCIENTIFIC DETACHMENT<br />THEY ARE WRITTEN IN THE LANGUAGE OF ORDINARY MEN, AND THE IMAGERY IS THAT OF EVERYDAY LIFE<br />THE ESSAYS ARE BRIEF AND FULL OF CONDENSED, WEIGHTY AUTHENTICAL SENTENCES, WHICH HAVE THE QUALITIES OF PROVERBIAL EXPRESSIONS<br />
  6. 6. FRANCIS BACON<br />EXPRESSIONS ARE NOTABLE FOR THEIR PRECISION AND CLARITY OF PHRASING<br />MANY HAVE STRIKING OPENINGS<br />
  7. 7. OF LOVE<br />Bacon presents the merits and demerits of love in his essay, “Of Love”. <br />Love plays rather a great role in stage than in real life<br />Having love as a theme many plays were produced mostly comedies and also few tragedies<br />
  8. 8. OF LOVE<br />But love causes more trouble in real life<br />Lovemay drive a man away from his career as it happened in the case of Antony<br />Love can also drive a man mad with jealousy as in the case of Othello<br />In real life none has lost his mental balance for the sake of love<br />
  9. 9. OF LOVE<br />There were exceptions like Antony and Claudius (Wiseman of Rome)<br />Bacon says that it is foolish to kneel before a lady for the sake of love<br />He says that there are more mysteries to be unravelled about mankind<br />
  10. 10. OF LOVE<br />Love distorts men’s judgement of things<br />Men indulge in flattery once they fall in love<br />Their flattery would be worse than that of self-flattery.<br />One cannot love and one cannot be wise at the same time<br />Man should keep vigil against the passion of love<br />. A lover may not only lose other things for the sake of love but also loses love<br />
  11. 11. OF LOVE<br />In spite of all the sacrifice it may defeat its own object<br />Paris lost everything for Helen but finally he lost Helen<br />Love is directly proportional to both prosperity and adversity<br />Love is the child of folly<br />If it cannot be resisted that should be kept within limits<br />It may ruin one’s life<br />
  12. 12. OF LOVE<br />For soldiers drinking and loving are the same because it is an alibi for dangers which they are exposed<br />A man becomes kind hearted if he loves a large number of people<br />Married love is good<br />Love of friends is great<br />Immoral love only debases human value<br />
