Ben Jonson on the Greatness of Francis Bacon

QAB8.png

Thanks so much for this Ben Jonson quote which I hadn't seen before. So touching and genuine in its reverential description of Lord Bacon. A testimony to the depth of their friendship/collaboration.

Francis Bacon the Greatest of all Men

QAB10.png

"Grave liberal mind contending with the rest, to seat them all in thy judicious breast." Another revealing quote I'm unfamiliar with. Did Peyton compose this poetic tribute to Lord Bacon? It suggests something of Bacon's incorruptibility in defending the Truth against ignorance. This wonderful couplet, written by someone who must have known Bacon well and marvelled at his 'centredness', as well as his sheer brilliance, also shines a light on the private loneliness of being ahead of one's time. And yet at the same time the last line suggests SFB's enormous compassion for all things and beings.
