FRANCIS BACON

Classic Literature. Author Biography

Francis Bacon (1561 – 1626)

classic book author francis baconFrancis Bacon was born in Strand, London as the youngest of five sons. In poor health from an early age he was educated at home, but went to Trinity College, Oxford by the age of twelve. It was here he met Queen Elizabeth I who was impressed by Francis Bacon’s academic talents.

By 1584, he had a seat in parliament and took part in the calls for the execution of Mary Queen of Scots. In 1596 he was made Queen’s counsel, but it failed to remedy his poor financial situation which had caused him considerably hardship since the unexpected death of his father, and whose will had not be finalised. By 1598 he was arrested for his debt , yet found favour with the Queen.

Following his scientific research, Francis Bacon was examining the use of snow as a preservative for meat, but contracted pneumonia in the process.
