The present publication is intended to supply a recognised deficiency in our literature--a library edition of the Essays of Montaigne. This great.
Describing his collection of Essays as a book consubstantial with its author, Montaigne identified both the power and the charm of a work which introduces us to one of the most attractive figures in European literature. A humanist, a sceptic, an acute observer of himself and others, he reflects the great themes of existence through the prism of his own self-consciousness.
Montaigne was an excellent writer and has something to say to everyone. This is an excellent read and I would encourage everyone to read this book. The author has so many interesting things to say, it's like having a friend to talk to on the dark and rainy days. Please Note: This book is in easy to read true text, not scanned images that can sometimes be difficult to decipher. This eBook has.
