Les Essais - Montaigne - VOL 1 ( LIVRE I)

Product Description

Montaigne's 'Essays' in this edition cover a selection of his writing from the first volume of the text; questions which remain relevant today and which formed a fundamental part of French intellectual thought. These questions continued to occupy Montaigne until his death in 1592. Denouncing our greatness as much as our misery, our certainties and quirks, Montaigne presents an image of man as he should be. But Les Essais is also considered an iconic representation of the wonders of the French language.

Montaigne's "Essais" (Essay) are one of the greatest and most important books of the French literature. They were written at the end of the 16th century. This CD present a selection of Montaigne's "chef d'œuvre" made for a contemporary man or woman's preoccupations. The selection has been adapted for an oral transmission. Only a great actor could pretend to take up this challenge, and this is the brilliant Michel Piccoli who did it in this 2-CD box.

“C’est ici un livre de bonne foi, lecteur. Il t’avertit dès l’entrée que je ne me suis proposé aucune fin, que domestique et privée. Je n’y ai eu aucune considération de ton service ni de ma gloire.” Montaigne

Les essais de Montaigne de la présente édition sonore sont une sélection d’écrits dont les thèmes trouvent écho aux questions contemporaines. Texte fondateur de la pensée intellectuelle française, ces essais ont fait l’objet d’un travail de réécriture pour l’oralité par Olivier Cohen et devaient être interprétés par un grand comédien français. Michel Piccoli a accepté le défi de cette performance sonore.
