Most widely held works by Valentine Simmes
Selected essays; the Charles Cotton - W.C. Hazlitt translation, rev. and edited, with an introd by Michel de Montaigne( Book )

2 editions published in 1603 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare, Nietzsche once wrote, was Montaigne's best reader. It is a typically brilliant Nietzschean insight, capturing the intimate relationship between the ever-changing record of the mutable self constituted by Montaigne's Essays and Shakespeare's kaleidoscopic register of human character. For all that, how much Shakespeare actually read Montaigne remains a matter of uncertainty and debate to this day. That he read him there is no doubt. Passages from Montaigne are evidently reworked in both King Lear and The Tempest, and there are possible echoes elsewhere in the plays. But however closely Shakespeare himself may have pored over the Essays, he lived in a milieu in which Montaigne was widely known, oft cited, and both disputed and respected. This in turn was thanks to the inspired and dazzling translation of his work by a man who was a fascinating polymath, man-about-town, and master of language himself, John Florio. Shakespeare's Montaigne offers modern readers a new, adroitly modernized edition of Florio's translation of the Essays, a still-resonant reading of Montaigne that is also a masterpiece of English prose. Stephen Greenblatt's introduction also explores the echoes and significant tensions between Shakespeare's and Montaigne's world visions, while Peter Platt introduces readers to the life and times of John Florio. Altogether, this book provides a remarkable new experience of not just two but three great writers who ushered in the modern world"--
The malcontent by John Marston( Book )

"The true Duke of Genoa has lost his throne to the usurper Pietro. The Duke returns to court in disguise in order to expose the corruption and regain his rightful office. Resonating with echoes of Measure for Measure and Hamlet, Marston's tragicomedy is a fabulous study of courtly intrigue, betrayal and treachery."--Jacket
