Drawn From Life

Selected Essays of Michel de Montaigne

by Michel de Montaigne, Tim Parks


A new selection of Montaigne's essays that explore themes of fear, courage, mortality and personal freedom. In his vivid introduction, Tim Parks sheds new light on this enduringly popular figure whose essays are 'so engaging, so seductive, that many readers will revel in their intimacy and irreverence without entirely grasping the challenge they throw down to us.'
