Synopsis In 1572, Montaigne retired to his estates in order to devote himself to leisure, reading and reflection. There he wrote his constantly expanding 'essays', inspired by the ideas he found in books from his library and his own experience. He discusses subjects as diverse as war-horses.

It was reasonable enough that Montaigne should expect for his work a certain share of celebrity in Gascony, and even, as time went on, throughout France; but he professes, at least in one place of the Essays, to doubt whether they would, owing to changes of taste and diction, outlast fifty years; and it is, at any rate, scarcely probable that he foresaw how his renown was to become worldwide.From the first sixteenth-century neighbor or friend to browse through a draft from Montaigne’s desk to the very last human being (or other conscious entity) to extract it from the memory banks of a future virtual library, every new reading means a new Essays.

The database immediately offers scholars more accurate data on translations. Up until now, scholars have had to cite Julia G. Ebel’s helpful but now over 40-year-old “A Numerical Survey of Elizabethan Translations” for raw numerical data on translations. Searches on the RCCC using the Year field consistently show that Ebel’s numbers for printed translations were considerably lower than.
Included in Plutarch’s Lives (22 vols.) are the 11 surviving biographical texts which Ralph Waldo Emerson called “a Bible of heroes.” These biographies pair famous Greeks with famous Romans to highlight their similarities. He was more concerned with character than history, which may be a reason Emerson also said, “we cannot read Plutarch without a tingling of the blood.”.
