Review:

Thought-provoking...a real treat for Woolf fans. Virginia Woolf Blog
Underpinning all of the essays is the question of what it means to have a sense of self. A question that, in the age of the selfie, seems utterly topical. Julia Bell, Writers Hub, University College London
The essays...are sublime moments in intellectual history, while also being entertaining and accessible. Shiny New Books"

"Montaigne suggests a way that Western thought might still have taken, not based on information, idealism or concepts of progress. He is perhaps the last writer who gathers together the vast wisdom of antiquity and, entirely ignoring Christianity, seeks to seduce us toward a happier way of life." Tim Parks"

About the Author:

Michel de Montaigne is one of the founding fathers of the essay. Retreating to his chateau to write, (and often neglecting his estate duties), Montaigne pondered the great and small questions of life. Throughout his essays he attempted to reach a deeper understanding of himself, and in doing so, touches on the greater human condition. Always curious, Montaigne ponders subjects as diverse as education, fear, reading and death. His ideas and the charm of his writing continue to captivate modern readers.
