This review is from: Essays (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
I was unhappy that this volume, entitled "Essays" should more accurately be entitled "Essay Selections". It might be thought that unless it says "Complete Essays", no-one should think it complete. I would argue that where a selection has been made, that should be clear, and where some of the selections are, as some of these appear to be, extracts rather than whole essays, that should also be clear. "Selections and extracts from the essays of Montaigne" might be the appropriate title.
