About the Book

Francis Bacon has a rarest confluence of excellent qualities ever bestowed upon a human brain. His initial and never-ending love throughout his entire life was the passionate and glorious aspiration for knowledge. And yet, it wasn't just a miserable existence; it was a life of poverty. Bacon sold himself to James I's despicable and dishonest government. He was prepared to work for Bacon, who was his most devoted and wealthy employer, to pursue Essex. Essex was guilty to the State—deeply guilty. With his eyes open, he willingly submitted to a system that was beneath him. It appears that he lived by the guiding principle of his natural philosophy, parendo vincitur. He experienced a sense of being engulfed by powerful forces in both the moral and physical realms, powerless against direct confrontation. His first lesson on nature is that it must be conquered by paying attention to its inclinations and requirements. He was sent to Cambridge at the age of twelve and placed under Whitgift at Trinity. When Bacon was just 16 years old, he was accepted into Gray's Inn's Society of "Ancients." He travelled to France as a member of Sir Amyas Paulet's household, the Queen's ambassador.

About Author

R. W. Church

R.W. CHURCH About the author Richard William Church, sometimes known as Dean Church, was an English churchman and writer who lived from 25 April 1815 to 6 December 1890. The oldest of three boys born to wine trader John Dearman Church and his wife Bromley Caroline Metzener, Richard William was born (died 1845). John was not baptised into the Church of England until his marriage in 1814. His paternal grandparents, Cork businessman Matthew Church and his wife, were Quakers. In 1818, the family relocated to Florence. His mother moved to Bath when his father passed away in 1828, and he was enrolled at Redland, a severe evangelical school near Bristol. He was enrolled to Wadham College at Oxford in 1832, and in 1836 he graduated with first-class honours. In the meanwhile, his mother had remarried to Leghorn-born widower Thomas Crokat. He co-founded The Guardian newspaper in 1846 and contributed to The Saturday Review early on. He once more served as Oriel's instructor before accepting the modest living of Whatley in Somerset, close to Frome, in 1858. He was reportedly a conscientious parish priest and a dedicated learner who made significant contributions to contemporary writing.
