Full Description

Essais (Essays), the large collection of short essays by Michel de Montaigne was published in 1580. The essays are a reflection of Montaigne's philosophy, his interests and learning. They describe humans, particularly Montaigne himself, and he expressed his thoughts freely through his essays.

His essays explore subjects as diverse as war-horses and cannibals, poetry and politics, sex and religion, love and friendship, ecstasy, and experience. Montaigne is associated with establishing the essay as a recognized genre in literature, and was the first person to use the word 'essay' to describe his writings.

Part of the bestselling Capstone Classics series, This high-quality, hardcover volume is a must-have for readers interested in the writings of Michel de Montaigne.
