about


The Essays of Michel de Montaigne are contained in three novels and a hundred and seven chapters of varying length. Montaigne's stated design in writing, publishing and revising the Essays over the period from approximately 1570 to 1592 was to record for the 'private benefit of friends and kinsmen ... some traits of my character and of my humours.' The Essays were first published in 1580 and cover a wide range of topics. As Essai is French for "trial" or "attempt", so Montaigne attempted to explore his thoughts, his life and learning in written form. His essays are widely regarded as the predecessor of the modern essay: a focused treatment of issues, events and concerns past, present and future.
This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  It has also been annotated, with additional information about the essays and its author, including an overview, information on style, content, and chronology, and information on the life of Michel de Montaigne.
