The complete works of Michel de Monaigne, including essays, letters, and travel journals of the father and unsurpassed practitioner of the essay. Humanist, skeptic, acute observer of himself and others, Michel de Montaigne (1533-92) was the first to use the term "essay" to refer to the form he pioneered and he has remained one of its most famous practitioners. He reflected on the great themes of existence in his masterly and engaging writings. His subjects ranging from proper conversation and good reading, to the raising of children and the endurance of pain; from solitude, destiny, time and custom, to truth, consciousness, and death. Having stood the test of time, his essays continue to influence writers nearly five hundred years later. Also included in this complete edition of his works are Montaigne's letters and travel journal, fascinating records of the experiences and contemplations that would shape and infuse his essays. Montaigne speaks to us always in a personal voice in which his virtues of tolerance, moderation, and understanding are dazzlingly manifest. The translation is widely acknowledged to be the classic English version.… (mer)

Montaigne's Essays is a desert island book, one of culture's 'permanent things', a source of wit and wisdom for all time. After careful consideration I give my vote to the translation by Donald Frame (I find it generally preferable to the next-best modern translation, by M.A. Screech). The widely-printed Jacobean translation by John Florio is interesting from a literary perspective but does little to convey the lucidity of Montaigne to the modern reader. This Everyman edition includes 'bonus material' in the form of Montaigne's travel journal and letters. While these additions are necessary to qualify the volume as ‘the complete works’, they are of secondary literary importance. The travel journal deals extensively with (and provides too much detail about) Montaigne’s health issues, and the letters are a rag bag of epistles dedicatory and official correspondence that do not stand on their own merits. As is usually the case with Everyman, this is the most attractive edition on the market. Buy it, then buy it again for a friend. ( )

What a weird purchase. I recall really like Montaigne in college, but now I just find it "historically interesting," which is to say, not interesting, really.

Of The Education Of Children:

To criticize my own faults in others seems to me no more inconsistent than to criticize, as I often do, other's faults in myself. We must denounce them everywhere and leave them no place to refuge. (131)
Of The Education Of Children:

...these are my humors and opinions; I offer them as what I believe, not what is to be believed. I aim here only at revealing myself, who will perhaps be different tomorrow, if I learn something new which changes me. I have no authority to be believed, nor do I want it, feeling myself too ill-instructed to instruct others. (132)
Of The Education Of Children:

Our tutors never stop bawling in our ears, as though they were pouring water into a funnel; and our task is only to repeat what has been told us. I should like the tutor to correct this practice, and right from the start, according to the capacity of the mind he has in hand, to begin putting it through its paces, making it taste things, choose them, and discern them by itself; sometimes letting him clear his own way. I don't want him to think and talk alone, I want him to listen to his pupil speaking in his turn. Socrates, and later Arecesilaus, often had their disciples speak, and then they spoke to them. 'The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn [Cicero]. (134)
Of The Education Of Children:

To know by heart is not to know; it is to retain what we have given our memory to keep. (136)
Of The Education Of Children:

...according the the opinion of Plato, who says that steadfastness, faith, and sincerity are the real philosophy, and the other sciences which aim at other things are only powder and rouge. (136)
