Summary
"This book was written to furnish to the English student the best practicable substitute for classical training. We have many valuable works about the English language and literature, and enough of instruction about how to interpret what we read. To give a higher value to these, we need critically to read and interpret more good English in our schools. For these purposes, no book seems better adapted, as a foundation, than Lord Bacon's Essays--abounding in classical learning, in occasional great felicities of style, in solid, weighty, and ingenious thought; also in forms of expression antiquated, obsolete and obscure; in sentences sometimes elegant, sometimes decidedly the reverse, and these, in many instances, not well arranged as to length or structure, or distribution into paragraphs of suitable length. On these, and other accounts, these Essays are admirably adapted for critical purposes, for the culture of judgment and taste, for the comparison of older forms of expression with those approved at the present day, and as a preparation for the intelligent and appreciative reading of the great English authors of the seventeenth century, so rich in thought, in learning, and in genius. This edition annotates all those essays which are considered as decidedly the most valuable. In preparing this work, a free use has been made of Archbishop Whately's edition, and especially of his annotations. To these essays is added the Sketch of the Life and Character of Lord Francis Bacon, a review of his philosophical writings by Hallam, Macauley, Craik and MacFarlane, and Devy, and a critical estimation of Bacon's essays by Beattie, Hallam, Macauley, Archbiship Whatley, Stweart, and Reed"--Introduction.
