This edition of Francis Bacon's (1561-1626) The Essayes or Counsels, Civill and Morall, a re-issue of the first critical edition since the nineteenth century, uses modern editorial standards to establish an authoritative, unmodernized text. The textual apparatus includes a comprehensive, chronological record of the substantive readings of all these manuscripts and editions, so that for the first time the evolution of Bacon's texts may be studied conveniently in detail.

About the Author:


Michael Kiernan is Associate Professor of English, Pennsylvania State University and editor of The Advancement of Learning published as Volume IV of OFB, 2000.

Review:

`an important book, graced by meticulous editorial work and a thorough introduction.'
Heather Dubrow, Studies in English Literature 1500-1900

`It is nearly a century since the last substantial edition of the Essays was produced: Kiernan's thus incorporates and adds to a great increment of knowledge and understanding, while presenting the first real critical text. The gap was large: the completeness with which it has been filled
justifies the long wait. No one seriously interested in the Essays can do without the Oxford edition.'
Robin Robbins, TLS 6/3/87

`A surely definitive edition of Bacon's essays by Michael Kiernan ... the editing and presentation are faultless.'
Bernard Levin, Sunday Times, 12/7/87

`Michael Kiernan has outclassed all previous editions; indeed, no work by Bacon has ever had such care lavished on it ... This edition provides the reader with more than he could ever have expected ... Professor Kiernan is to be congratulated for producing an edition which sets new standards
in Bacon scholarship'
Brian Vickers, Modern Language Review 83 (1988)
