If you are considering reading the Essays or any
book about Montaigne, please stay with any editions/translations by M.A. Screech - NOT Frame.
I am an avid fan of the Essays and the most wonderful translation produced - ever - is by Screech. The Penquin Classics uses the Screech translation and it is as if you have been transported to the time and feeling of Montaigne, not the way Frame brings the language up to our modern parlance. Montaigne would be aghast
to have his words and cadence so changed from the world in which he lived.
