Bacons Essay Of Youth And Age Summary Of Macbeth

Bacon's essay contrasts the imagination, energy, and willingness to take risks of young men with the opposite traits found in the aged: caution, indecision, and understanding.

Bacon recognizes that both age groups have strengths and weaknesses, evident in this quotation:

Certainly it is good to compound employments of both; for that will be good for the present, because the virtues of either age may correct the defects of both.

Bacon's essay contrasts the imagination, energy, and willingness to take risks of young men with the opposite traits found in the aged: caution, indecision, and understanding.

Bacon recognizes that both age groups have strengths and weaknesses, evident in this quotation:

Certainly it is good to compound employments of both; for that will be good for the present, because the virtues of either age may correct the defects of both.

Bacon observes that the capacity of the young to learn perhaps exceeds that of their elders, and that they also have the passion and fire to support their desires, but notes that postponing action until acquiring the wisdom that comes with age served both "Julius Cæsar and Septimius Severus."

Bacon admits that in some ways this argument is a zero sum game; for example, young men tend to act boldly and heedlessly and earn the errors they make, while old men's actions are marked by hesitations and half measures that also bring unsatisfactory results, but more opposite reasons.

In 1603, Bacon wrote to a friend of his, the poet,

1. The only Shakespeare notebook, a collection of expressions, phrases, and sentences, many of which appear in the Shakespeare plays. This is the Promus, written by Francis Bacon. This notebook has not been mentioned by a single Shakespeare biographer. (There is a very good psychological reason why orthodox scholarship is so concerned to repudiate any suggestion of Lord Bacon's connection with Shake-speare. This is to protect the Bard (whom all admire, whoever he was) from the stigma of Lord Bacon's supposed corruption, which they in their ignorance take for granted.-Martin Pares)

2. The only contemporary document bearing the names of Shakespeare and Bacon and the titles of two Shakespeare plays (Richard II and Richard III) and Shakespeare phrases. The Northumberland Manuscript which resides where it was discovered in Alnwick Castle, can be found an interesting juxtaposition of Bacon's Christian name and William Shakespeare. The page consists of a contents list of speeches and other manuscripts. Underneath "by ffrancis William Shakespeare" we read "Richard II and Richard III." Over the word 'ffrancis' is written another word which it is impossible to read until the whole page is turned upside down. Then it is seen that the word is 'ffrancis ' and next to it , also upside down, are the words, 'your sovereign.' The long word in Love's Labour's Lost also appears in the Northumberland Manuscript. The probable date of the Manuscript is 1597.

3. Bacon -Shakespeare Coincidences

4. The Manes Verulamiani, a collection of obituary poems written in honor of Bacon by his friends, in Latin, some of which quote the expressions used on the Shakespeare monument in the Stratford church. Several of these tributes praise Bacon for his comedies, tragedies and poetry.

5. Bacon'sroyal parentage, may be considered one of several reasons for his anonymity as author.

6. Bacon's knowledge of Hermetic, Rosicrucian, Neoplatonic and Kabbalistic teaching. Rosicrucian themes are found in:

Bacon's New Atlantis
As You Like It
Love's Labour's Lost
Venus and Adonis
The Shakespeare Sonnets

7. That Bacon was known as a poet by his contemporaries is validated by their tributes.(Yet this prodigious writer left hardly any poetry printed under his own name.) Perhaps the most important proof of the esteem in which he was held is exhibited in the "Great Assizes Holden in Parnassus" published in 1645.

8. The nonsense word in Love's Labour's Lost, honorificabilitudinitatibus.

9. Letter from Bacon to King James,Nov.1622:

10. The St.Albans Mural, in the White Hart Inn, dated 1600 illustrating scenes from Venus and Adonis. At least six details have been found which link this large painting with Bacon, his nearby house at Gorhambury, the Rosicrucians, led by Bacon, and the Shakespeare plays. One of the six rules imposed on members of the Rosicrucian order, was anonymity for a hundred years. If this mural had been discovered in Stratford, or Bankside, it would have been mentioned in all books on the life of Shakespeare since its discovery in 1985. It has not been mentioned once.
