Francis Bacon's comments on communication and rhetoric are scattered throughout his works--in letters and occasional writings, in philosophical, scientific, and literary compositions. The author collects these observations and presents a systematic exposition of Bacon's rhetorical theory. In addition, he evaluates Bacon's ideas and indicates his relation to classical and to Elizabethan rhetoric.

Originally published in 1943.
