In this edition of Bacon's Essays Professor Chaudhuri provides a long introduction, detailed notes on the text, notes on Bacon's language, a guided reading list, and earlier versions of two of the essays to show Bacon's development of style and structure over the years.

The twenty-six most important essays chosen by Professor Chaudhuri have been arranged according to themes: human nature; morals and conduct; society and the state; thought , art and leisure; and philosophical analysis.

The best editions of Bacon's Essays published in the last century are now out of print. It is hoped that this edition, which makes comprehensive use of the Bacon scholarship of the past and provides new insights into the form and content of Essays, will prove useful to all serious students of Bacon.
