Will Self on Montaigne

Will Self will come and talk about his favourite French author: Montaigne.

French Passions Conference Series

Will Self on Montaigne

Will Self will talk about his love for Montaigne by answering some quite intimate questions… He will tell us about the time when he first discovered Montaigne, whether it was love at first sight, whether he often rereads the Essays, whether he has encouraged his friends to read them and whether Montaigne has ever disappointed him. And he may attempt to answer the most important question: should we read Montaigne, and why?
