Introduction. The essay Of Studies by Sir Francis Bacon is the first essay in the series of ten essays published in 1597.Later, it was revised in 1612 with the addition of some more sentences and ideas in it along with the alteration in some vocabulary terms.
Bacons essays are in class apart from those of the other essayists like lamb, Macaulay and Addison. He himself called them “pithy jottings” rather apt than curious. The description exactly fits his writings especially earlier assay like “of studies”.

Bacon's essay Of Truth is, I consider, an apology for poetical fiction, and for the masking and mumming of his theatre, on the score of man's absolute love of lies, and hatred of truth. The modern love of novels is a very strong corroboration of this statement.

In introducing the essay format by pioneered by Montaigne to English, Bacon gave the genre a pointed, business-like concision, perhaps more reminiscent of Machiavelli.
