About the Author

Michel de Montaigne was born in Chateau de Montaigne, near Bordeaux, France, on February 28, 1533. He received his early education at the College de Guyenne in Bordeaux and studied law at Bordeaux and Toulouse, becoming a counselor of the Court des Aides of Perigueaux, the Bordeaux Parliament and, mostrar mais in 1561, at the court of Charles IX. In 1565, Montaigne married Francoise de la Chassaigne. They raised one daughter, with four other children dying in infancy. He lived the life as a country gentleman and traveled extensively through Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. Montaigne was a moderate Roman Catholic and an advocate of toleration, acting as an intermediary between Henry of Navarre and the court party. As a result, in 1588, he was arrested by members of the Protestant League and thrown into the Bastille for several hours. His work Essais established the essay as a new literary form and influenced both French and English writers; it was quoted by William Shakespeare and imitated by Francis Bacon. Michel de Montaigne died on September 13, 1592 at his chateau in France. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Pequena biografia
Montaigne was one of the great humanists of the French Renaissance era and one of its most influential writers. He's best known for his essays, which not only made this literary genre more popular but also more interesting to the reader.

Montaigne grew up speaking Latin and reading Vergil, Ovid, and Horace on his own. At age 6, he was sent to boarding school, the Collège de Guyenne in Bordeaux. He may have studied law, but the school is unknown; his father purchased a law office for him in the Court of Périgueux. He met Etienne de La Boétie, with whom he formed a lifelong friendship. Montaigne retired at age 37 to his father's castle to write. He later received numerous honors from the court of King Charles IX, including the Order of Saint-Michel, and was named a Gentleman of the Ordinary Chamber. He was elected mayor of Bordeaux and served two terms in office.

What an excellent little book! These four essays are very different, all written well over 400 years ago.

Certainly his essay 'On Cannibals, gives one food for thought, given Montaigne's respect for barbarous peoples, once one understands their motives. Are we so different, he asks?

Just over four small pages long, On Smells is fun. He posits that the best characteristic of our boy that we can hope for is that it smells of nothing.

The Art of Conversation has a special place in French culture. In parts fascinating and thought-provoking and from time to time one had to reflect on one's own ways. However, at some 48 of these small pages, it was rather too long, perhaps meandering and too erudite for this chump of a reader. Nevertheless, one might agree that "... the most fruitful and most natural exercise of our minds iis conversation.", and to read one essay in one's life on the topic is no bad thing!

I'll give Montaigne a thumbs up - or is it a thumbs down? - for his very short essay, on three little pages, entitled On Thumbs.
