Michel de Montaigne

If you missed class on Monday, I gave a lecture on Michel de Montaigne and handed out four of his essays. They are, if you want to get started on them before coming to class, “Of Idleness,” “Of the Inconstancy of Our Actions,” “Of Smells,” and “Of Practice” (links to full text by Gutenberg.org).

Here’s a picture of Montaigne. Here’s a picture of his crib.
