Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A lavish hardcover collectors edition of one of the most influential works ever written

 

How to get along with people, how to deal with violence, how to adjust to losing someone you love—such questions arise in most peoples lives. They are all versions of a bigger question: How do you live? This question obsessed Renaissance writers, none more than Michel de Montaigne, who wrote free-roaming explorations of his thoughts and experiences unlike anything written before, and in the process invented the genre of the essay.

Montaigne influenced many of the worlds greatest writers, from Shakespeare to Rousseau to Emerson to Christopher Hitchens, and readers still come to him more than four hundred years later in search of companionship, wisdom, and entertainment—and in search of themselves.

This beautiful, oversized, deluxe edition of Essays—bound in gold-lettered cloth, complete with a ribbon bookmark and full-sized facsimiles of Montaignes first folio pages—deserves to stand as a centerpiece in any personal library.

Synopsis:

Written in the literary style of the French Renaissance, "On Solitude" is de Montaigne's stoic reflection on living a life of imagination and virtue.

Synopsis:
