Editorial Review

Product Description
Everyone acknowledges the Essays of Michel de Montaigne as one of the glories of civilized thought. But in this volume, Marvin Lowenthal has drawn from his letters, essays, travel writings, and manuscripts to create a biography of his life told in his own words, thereby fulfilling Montaigne s intention of presenting his self-portrait to the world. For it was Montaigne who wrote, My book and I are one, and into his writing he poured the amazing varieties of his perceptions, his unflinching powers of observation and analysis, and his deeply felt love of humanity in all its messy contrariness. Above his desk, on a beam on his ceiling, were inscribed the words nihil humani alieni mihi puto : nothing human is alien to me and nothing was, for into his writing he distilled his tender heart and biting wit, his nonsense and wisdom, his passions and his hates. By collecting and arranging these autobiographical passages into a unified whole, Lowenthal has framed a complete portrait in this rich and rewarding book. All of Montaigne is here: his adventures and love affairs, his marriage, travels, tastes, and opinions. Seldom has so much wit, wisdom, and pure entertainment been packed into a single volume. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars wisdom from the past
A must-read for those seeking wisdom in the everyday-ness of life. M. de Montaigne's words are both humorous and profound, crisply translated and arranged by M. Lowenthal that make of the book a pleasant read, not just to pass the time but to get something out of it. It honestly leads one to the desired effect, to take up and read M. de Montaigne's book Essays itself to continue drinking from his fount of wisdom.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book with an Impossible Task
This is an excellent book, so long as you understand what you are dealing with. While it is true that Montaigne did not write an autobiography (indeed this would have been unusual to say the least) he was most careful about his writing--for example he would not erase any passages or writings. Therefore, Montaigne's writings are a wealth of information about a man, and when put together carefully provide a good portrait of the man. Perhaps not technically an autobiography, nevertheless I think that Montaigne would have appreciated Lowenthal's effort.

2-0 out of 5 stars NOT an autobiography
Do not be misled. This is NOT Montaigne's autobiography. Montaigne did not write an autobiography. (Who did, before Rousseau, 200 years later? Besides St. Agustuine.) This book (originally published in 1935) is a cut-and-paste collection of passages from the "Essays," and from M's letters and diaries, notes, and journals, arranged AS IF constituting a deliberately composed autobiography. ("Aided by scissors, paste, and patience, I have let him retell his life story," the editor says.) Useful, I suppose, in getting some sense of the order of events in M's life. On the other hand, the book is not annotated, so you have no idea where any particular passage might have come from. Consequently, irritating, if you care anything about the original form and literary purpose of what Montaigne actually wrote. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ever-Inquisitive Mind

In September 1580, Montaigne set out for Rome by way of Austria and Switzerland for what would end up being a 17-month trip. The same intelligence, objectivity and goodwill that characterize his famous Essays appear in this travel journal as well, making it a joy to read. An excerpt:

"On the eve of Easter I saw at Saint John Lateran the heads of Saint Paul and Saint Peter that are shown there, which still have their flesh, color, and beard, as if they were alive: Saint Peter, a white and slightly longish face, his color ruddy and inclined to the sanguine, a forked gray beard, his head covered with a papal miter; Saint Paul, dark, his face broad and stouter, the head bigger, the beard gray, thick. They are up high in a special place. The way of showing them is that they call the people by the sound of bells, and by fits and starts lower a curtain be-hind which are these heads, side by side. They Iet them be seen for the time it takes to say an Ave Maria, and immediately raise the curtain again; after that they lower it again in the same way, and this up to three times. They repeat this exhibition four or five times during the day. The place is about as high as a pike, and then there is a heavy iron grill through which you look. They light several tapers around it on the out-side; but it is hard to discern very clearly all the details. I saw them two or three times. The polish of these faces had some resemblance to our masks." (p. 95)

The heads are still in the church; unfortunately they are no longer displayed publicly.

North Point Press' books are wonderful examples of the bookmaker's art, but the company went out of business quite a while ago. Be sure to buy their edition if you can find one. The Foreword by Guy Davenport and Introduction by Donald M. Frame are icing on the cake.

Editorial Review

Product Description
Michel de Montaigne has always been acknowledged as a great literary figure but never thought of as a philosophical original.This book is the first to treat him as a serious thinker in his own right, taking as its point of departure Montaigne's description of himself as "an unpremeditated and accidental philosopher". This major reassessment of a much admired but also greatly underestimated thinker is for historians of philosophy and scholars in comparative literature, French studies and the history of ideas. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
This book examines how Montaigne, in his "Essays and Travel Journal", and Madame de Sevigne in her "Correspondence" demonstrate the tensions between communication with a loved one, and, on the other hand, withdrawal, reflection, and distress. This study explores the writing practices of two representative French authors from the 16th and 17th centuries, Michel de Montaigne and Madame de Sevigne. The two authors share a double quality: the autobiographical genre, which is a 'modest' genre, since the essay and the letter do not belong to the traditionally esteemed literary genres; and the manner of observing oneself by analyzing the private universe of one's physical and spiritual sufferings and illnesses. Thus, it is possible to reveal fascinating answers to the challenge of defining the body-soul relationship which haunted Modernity, and gave rise to a new literary genre in Montaigne's case, and, in Madame de Sevigne's case to an accomplished literary work which was intended to be a personal correspondence. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Still the wrong edition!
Be advised that as of April, 2010, you will still receive the Cotton translation, not Screech as advertised.
The link has never been corrected, despite the multiple complaints of the previous reviewer.
It does, however, have a table of contents.
If you are simply looking for a copy of the Essays and don't care who translated it, this edition is fine.
It just isn't the one specified in the description.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware: as of 9/1/09, Wrong Edition! Still Wrong on 9/11!
I purchased this edition on August 10, eager to read the Screech translation. Unfortunately, the link to that file is broken. Instead, I received the public domain e-book of the Cotton/Hazlitt translation. I didn't notice until today.

I'm giving 5 stars because:

-- Montaigne is incomparable.

-- I have read the Frame translation, and have heard good word about the Screech version.

-- Amazon support was excellent. They immediately deleted the version I had downloaded and helped me to test whether the file advertised on this page was incorrectly linked. They confirmed that it was, and promptly deleted all my versions, and refunded all charges.

Amazon told me that that it would take a few days to correct the problem. Make sure that you check what you buy and that you get what this page advertises, which is the modern translation by Screech, not the archaic translation by Cotton / Hazlitt.

UPDATE: I purchased this item again, having given Amazon the 2-3 days that the earlier customer service rep had said it would take to correct the link. I once again received the public domain Cotton / Hazlitt translation. Upon calling Amazon, they once again promised to correct the link (and once again gave me a refund). I told the person I spoke with about my last contact, and received assurances that I would receive an e-mail notice when the problem has been corrected. I am now less impressed with Amazon's customer service.

1-0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fraud- No Table of Contents- Don't buy
Please note almost all of the reviews on this page are for the regular book version.The Kindle version claims to have a Table of Contents, which is essential since the regular book is 1344 pages!They just lie.There is no Table of Contents and this typical of the Kindle store and I'm truly sorry I ever bought the thing.[...]. ...
