Montaigne: a biography by Donald Murdoch Frame( Book )

37 editions published between 1965 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Montaigne scholar Donald M. Frame explores the development of Montaigne's special brand of humanism and the origins of his art. He spent the last twenty years of his life in an intense examination and discovery of himself. In the process he compiled a brilliant book of essays (indeed, he invented the word) on himself, the world, and man's place in it. Mr. Frame's lucid biography traces Montaigne's childhood, education, work, marriage, travels, and death in sixteenth-century France. He examines Montaigne's deep friendship with a man whose untimely death deprived him of his closest friend and pushed him into the essays as a substitute for conversations no longer available

He reflected on the great themes of existence in his masterly and engaging writings. His subjects ranging from proper conversation and good reading, to the raising of children and the endurance of pain; from solitude, destiny, time and custom, to truth, consciousness, and death. Having stood the test of time, his essays continue to influence writers nearly five hundred years later. Also included in this complete edition of his works are Montaigne's letters and travel journal, fascinating records of the experiences and contemplations that would shape and infuse his essays. Montaigne speaks to us always in a personal voice in which his virtues of tolerance, moderation, and understanding are dazzlingly manifest. The translation is widely acknowledged to be the classic English version
