DetailsOne of France's great Renaissance thinkers, Michel de Montaigne (153392) invented the essay as a literary form. This compilation features the best of his brief, highly readable reflections on poetry, philosophy, theology, law, literature, education, and world exploration.Remarkably modern in their views, the essays continue to resonate with readers as their author bemoans his failing memory, criticizes his culture's obsession with celebrity, and attempts to pursue a more spiritual life.Abounding in aphorisms and anecdotes, enlivened by wordplay and a delightful folksiness, Montaigne's writings constitute a celebration of literacy, friendship, and joie de vivre.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: French writer and thinker Michel de Montaigne (1533-92) did much to popularize the essay as a literary form. His contributions to the genre offer a engaging balance of intellectual knowledge and personal anecdote.
