Selected Essays/Essais choisis: A Dual-Language Book - Michel de Montaigne

Product Description

Selected Essays/Essais choisis: A Dual-Language Book - Michel de Montaigne

One of the great French Renaissance thinkers, sixteenth-century philosopher Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592) was remarkably modern in his views. His writings—brilliant forerunners of the modern essay—reflect his thoughts and opinions on poetry, philosophy, theology, law, literature, education, and world exploration. Highly readable works written in a lively, conversational style, Montaigne's essays are journeys of self-discovery, created by the author to determine whether his views were formed through external forces or his own nature. Filled with aphorisms and anecdotes and enlivened by word play and a delightful folksiness, they are frank and unbiased, and ultimately, a celebration of literacy, friendship, and the love of life.

Here are seven of Michel de Montaigne's influential essays, presented in a unique dual-language format. An expert blend of intellect and personal storytelling, these works remain popular around the world and are essential reading for students of French language, literature, and culture. Introduction, new English translations, and Notes by Stanley Appelbaum.
