Michel de Montaigne was one of the most influential figures of the Renaissance, singlehandedly responsible for popularising the essay as a literary form. This Penguin Classics edition of The Complete Essays is translated from the French and edited with an introduction and notes by M.A. Screech. In 1572 Montaigne retired to his estates in order to devote himself to leisure, reading and reflection. There he wrote his constantly expanding 'assays', inspired by the ideas he found in books contained in his library and from his own experience. He discusses subjects as diverse as war-horses and cannibals, poetry and politics, sex and religion, love and friendship, ecstasy and experience. But, above all, Montaigne studied himself as a way of drawing out his own inner nature and that of men and women in general. The Essays are among the most idiosyncratic and personal works in all literature and provide an engaging insight into a wise Renaissance mind, continuing to give pleasure and enlightenment to modern readers. With its extensive introduction and notes, M.A. Screech's edition of Montaigne is widely regarded as the most distinguished of recent times. Michel de Montaigne (1533-1586) studied law and spent a number of years working as a counsellor before devoting his life to reading, writing and reflection. If you enjoyed The Complete Essays, you might like Francois Rabelais's Gargantua and Pantagruel, also available in Penguin Classics.

I can no longer tolerate reading the ramblings of this contemptible Frenchman. Montaigne isn't a renaissance intellectual by a long shot, he's a remnant of the 14th century man, a smug asshole wallowing in the pitch black murk of the dark ages, and worst of all a complete hypocrite and a bootlicker of the catholic church. Funny how he kept gatekeeping others from reading the Bible and discouraged the publication of vernacular Bible translations while citing biblical verses from a translated secondary source in his essays, his style was overly pompous and wordy, but Montaigne made denigrating the excessively ornate style of the humanist poets of his age a predominant subject in his essays, he did not care whether his writings would sound idiotically asinine to his readers, no, Montaigne only cared about churning one absurd string of foolish platitudes after another, he couldn't refrain from writing down one essay without letting self-contradiction seep into the next one, and as a final nail in the coffin, he gratuitously slandered homosexuals and cited the worst instances of historical homoromanticism to justify his atrociously close-minded stance on love in his appalling essay on friendship and romantic love. If I'll ever have the chance of visiting Montaigne's grave, I'd spit on this humongous jerk's tomb and hope I would never be cursed with the misfortune of hearing his name again. Here's one final big duck you to this medieval jackass. ( )

A very high four stars, only let down by the fact that this is a monstrous tome and that some of the essays are far less inspired than others. Some of Montaigne's "discoveries" are such a part of our existence now that they seem mundane, which just goes to show the wit and wisdom of his mind. ( )

II:25. Not to counterfeit being sick

“Let us not look for our disease outside of ourselves; it is within us, it is planted in our entrails. And the very fact that we do not realize that we are sick makes our cure more difficult. If we do not soon begin to tend ourselves, when will we have provided for so many sores and so many maladies? Yet we have a very sweet medicine in philosophy. For of the others we feel the pleasure only after the cure; this one pleases and cures at the same time.”

That is what Seneca says.....

This, reader, is an honest book. It warns you at the outset that my sole purpose in writing it has been a private and domestic one.
The most usual way to soften the hearts of those we have offended, when having vengeance in their hand, they hold us at their mercy, is to move them by submission to commiseration and pity; defiance, courage, and resolution—ans altogether different—have sometimes served the same purpose.
Reader, thou hast here an honest book; it doth at the outset forewarn thee that, in contriving the same, I have proposed to myself no other than a domestic and private end: I have had no consideration at all either to thy service or to my glory.
