montaigne 15-01-2011

this is quite wonderful. i am tempted to say, read it because... but if there is one thing which binds together the many disparate fans of montaigne it is that they have all found something different in his essays (mostly commonly a uncannily prescient version of themselves) and therefore have very different reasons for recommending them. this, however, is the perfect place to start to find out why you might love them.
