Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Michel de Montaigne's Essays , which explore widely diverse topics, were begun in 1572 when Montaigne was 38. To Friedrich, Montaigne is a descriptive anthropologist of Renaissance humanity rather than a defender of moral values. Friedrich interprets Montaigne's depiction of debased humanity, our animal helplessness; then demonstrates how Montaigne affirmed our humanity by describing the traits that make us admirable; and lastly discusses Montaigne's attempt to understand humankind by our own self-analysis. Friedrich stresses Montaigne's consent, obedience, and resignation toward life, recommending obedience to nature rather than Christian repentance in death. Though first published in Germany in 1949, Friedrich's is still one of the most comprehensive studies of the Essays . Essential for all academic libraries.

Review

"Originally published in 1949 in German, Hugo Friedrich's masterful study of Montaigne and his era has stood the test of time and indeed is considered by many scholars to be the best single book ever written on the 16th-century French essayist."--"Choice
