It's not him - it's me!
on 20 August 2017
I am ashamed to say that I don't like Montaigne having tried several of the essays in the book. This may say more about me than this classic essayist but I was expecting to find them to be accessible and relevant because that is what so many writers and critics have said about Montaigne over the years. I found them to be hard work, opaque and almost incomprehensible so I threw in the towel after about 4 essays.
I think you need to try them for yourself. I appear to be a lone voice here. It's a well set out edition and good value for the complete collection.
