Les Essais nous rappellent utilement que les études littéraires, les " humanités ", selon l'expression de l'époque, devaient avoir pour ambition la formation morale de l'homme et non l'acquisition de connaissances : " Le gain de notre étude, c'est en être devenu meilleur et plus sage. " A une époque où une opinion ne vaut que si elle se mesure en chiffres, où la nouveauté est érigée en dogme et l'excès en critère de qualité, il n'est sans doute pas inutile de lire et relire Montaigne.

Product Description

From Amazon

"Lecteur, je suis moi-même la matière de mon livre" : c'est ce surprenant aveu de subjectivité qui ouvre l'un des textes les plus modernes de la littérature française, quoique l'un des plus anciens. À la mort de son ami La Boétie, Montaigne décide en effet de prendre la plume pour perpétuer leurs discussions si fécondes. Sur ce mode autobiographique, tous les sujets seront abordés, de l'amitié à l'éducation, de la philosophie à la lecture, de la religion à la mort des hommes. En s'observant lui-même, Montaigne fait ainsi le tour de l'homme, proposant une réflexion essentielle sur sa place dans le monde et sur le champ d'action de la pensée humaine.

Au siècle de Rabelais, des poètes de la Pléiade et de l'humanisme européen, l'oeuvre de Montaigne reste une météorite inclassable, entre écriture personnelle et monument philosophique. Oeuvre d'un homme engagé dans son temps, les Essais allaient fonder toute une tradition d'écriture à la française, de Pascal à Malraux, de Rousseau à Camus. --Karla Manuele --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

" Le Montaigne de L'Apologie est un peu comme un Pascal à qui brusquement, par je ne sais quel moyen, la fausseté historique du christianisme aurait été démontrée. Dès lors que reste-t-il de tout ce qu'il a écrit et pensé ? Exactement ce qui en reste pour un non-chrétien, il reste qu'il a pensé, écrit en toute sincérité. " --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the complete essays June 19 2013
By Adam Gori - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is part of a language learning program. It is a small selection of essays. One review suggests that the book contains all of Montaigne's essays. Not so.

5.0 out of 5 stars best single-volume Montaigne I know of Dec 24 2011
By Caraculiambro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an absolutely superb edition! I'm just dropping by to give it a plug. For some reason, I can't find it anywhere on Amazon by searching for "Montaigne French Edition," so I had to resort to an ISBN search.

What you're looking at is all of Montaigne's essays, in French, in one volume. There are many extras: introductory essays, footnotes, etc. All the Latin and Greek is translated into French. There is not a single word of English anywhere in the book.

The most important thing you need to know is that in this edition fixes up Montaigne's spelling to be that of current French. It doesn't fix his diction, though, so sometimes you are told about that. But if you've ever peered into unretouched Montaigne, it's a bit like looking at unretouched Chaucer, with the wacky spellings and all. No, the spellings, contractions, and punctuations have all been rendered in modern French, just not his vocabulary and grammar.

I know of a better edition of Montaigne's essays, but not a single volume. (The three-volume job I know retains Montaigne's original spellings.)

The book is larger than a normal paperback, but not oversized. The pages are very thin, though: about the thickness of those used in the Norton anthologies.

The overall editor was Jean Ceard. The publisher is "La Pochotheque." The ISBN is 2253132721.

1.0 out of 5 stars Confusing description Sept. 30 2010
By a reader - Published on Amazon.com

The description of this product on Amazon.com is TOTALY confusing!! A book?! A CD-set?!
And if, in desperation, you order it, you actually receive a CD-set completely different from everything mentioned or pictured on this page ??!! Just unbelievable ... .
