Excerpt

faits établissent que Francis Bacon a connu et pratiqué les Essais: il a fait un emprunt direct à Montaigne; il a fait une allusion à sa personne en le nommant; il a cité un passage extrait de son livre dont il a indiqué lui-même la source.

Ce qu'il emprunte, c'est le titre de son premier ouvrage, les Essais. Nous verrons tout à l'heure qu'il n'y a pas de contestation sur ce point. En 1623, lorsqu'il traduit en latin et remanie sa première partie du De augmentis, il y insère cette phrase que les confessions de Montaigne lui inspirent: «Ceux qui ont naturellement le défaut d'être trop à la chose, trop occupés de l'affaire qu'ils ont actuellement dans les mains, et qui ne pensent pas même à tout ce qui survient (ce qui, de l'aveu de Montaigne, était son défaut), ces gens-là peuvent être de bons ministres, de bons administrateurs de R&eac
