Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his Essays Montaigne warns us from the outset that he has set himself 'no goal but a domestic and private one' yet he is one author whose modernity and universality have been acclaimed by each age since he wrote. Probing into his emotions, attitudes, and behavior, Montaigne reveals to us much about ourselves.

Synopsis:

The works of the French essayist reflect his views of morality, society, and customs in the late sixteenth century.

Books seem to come to us as needed. The Montaigne essays took their sweet time with me, but I have no complaints. May they do the same for you, as I believe (as do many others, mostly far more known and notable than me) is likely the case. Still staggering to realize how immediate they are, nearly 450 years later.
