Montaigne's Career

George Hoffmann

Oxford University Press

This chapter places Montaigne's efforts, as well as his achievement, within the broader picture of his entire career. It poses the broader question of what buying a copy of the Essays meant to Montaigne's readers, and how the advantages one hoped or expected to accrue from reading at the time might have affected Montaigne's very reasons for writing.
