I just started reading Montaigne, complete essays. But they are just rambling, not as rich or wise as Bacon’s essays, just filled up with constant classical and European little anecdotes of behavior that don’t seem to function well as moral fables.
Is it just me or must I read further? I have the Charles Cotton translation.
Is Montaigne overrated or what? Or is this just the best you can expect from the essay form?
