Michel de Montaigne wrote his Essais in France in the 16th century, and since then no-one has surpassed his skill at supposition, irony and enquiry. Now ex-BBC and One Word Radio producer Paul Kent takes on his heroâ€™s mantle to speculate on what Montaigne might have made of the modern world. While introducing the general reader to the works and approach of the great man, Kent takes the opportunity to look at modern phenomena - everything from booze and celebrity culture to government, sport and the arts - and to give them all the same quizzical, self-deprecating analysis that Montaigne himself might well have done.
