A major figure of his time Sir Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626) was an English philosopher, statesman and essayist but is best known for leading the scientific revolution with his new 'observation and experimentation' method. Bacon ranked #90 on Michael H. Hart's list of the most influential figures in history. He is often credited as the author of the works attributed to Shakespeare. Here he writes on diverse topics including truth, death, love, ambition, anger, fame, and the pleasures of gardening.
The temptations of illicit passion are a theme in Ethan Frome. Wharton had been advised to take up writing more seriously to relieve her stress and tension, and many point to the possibility of autobiographical elements in the novel. Wharton delivers austere and penetrating impressions of rural working-class New England as the environment to explore Ethan Frome's marriage to an unsympathetic Zeena and the infatuation he develops for their maid.
