The School of Montaigne in Early Modern Europe

Volume One: The Patron-Author and Volume Two: The Reader-Writer

Warren Boutcher

  • First major interdisciplinary study of the meanings and fortunes of the Essais across early modern Europe, not only in one country
  • First study to reinterpret the Essais from the perspective of the history of the book and the history of reading
  • Illustrations of the documents of Montaigne's reception
  • Offers a new perspective on one of the central conundrums of English Renaissance literary history: what was behind Shakespeare's borrowing from Montaigne in The Tempest?
