Montaigne: Selected Essays


Product Description
Product Details

About the Author

James B. Atkinson is an independent scholar. David Sices is Professor Emeritus of French and Italian, Dartmouth College.


A superb achievement, one that successfully brings together in accessible form the work of two major writers of Renaissance France. This is now the default version of Montaigne in English. --Timothy Hampton, Professor of French and Comparative Literature, University of California, Berkeley
Inspired. In every page--beginning with Atkinson's brilliant Introduction--this magical Montaigne betrays a lifetime of meditation on its subject. --Stephen G. Nichols, James M. Beall Professor Emeritus of French and Humanities, Johns Hopkins University
The translators pull off the difficult trick of capturing the whole spectrum of Montaigne's voices. . . . A thorough, engaging, and wholly readable translation, whose rich and informative guidance for the non-specialist will also be of use for academic readers and teachers of the period. --William McKenzie, St. Hilda's College, Oxford (adapted from MLR)
"The inclusion of La Boetie' Discourse truly sets this new translation apart. If La Boetie' thesis does not resonate with today' undergraduates, then we should all truly begin to despair. Highly recommended." --Michael Wolfe, St. John's University (adapted from Sixteenth Century Journal )
