Bacon, the father of literature ?

Shelley opined that Bacon was a poet ! Look at his poetic prose

" There is an abstruse astrologer that saith, were it not for two things, no human being would live.

First, the fixed stars ever maintain like distance from one another and never move furthur asunder and that the diurnal motion perpetually keepeth time ". How correct was Shelley. This is poetic prose at its best !
