Our next meeting is on 15 May 2013 and we have chosen two essays by Montaigne: ‘On Friendship’ and ‘On Pedantry’. Montaigne’s essays are widely available so we have not selected a particular edition. For those of you who have time to listen, Radio 4’s In Our Time covered Montaigne on 25 April 2013 and the website gives some good links and further reading at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01s0qmj
In addition to discussing the essays themselves, we thought it would be interesting to discuss ways in which we can see Montaigne’s influence on other works that we have read; or perhaps their common influences?
We look forward to seeing you,
Becky and Jackie
Anyone want to share ideas before the first meeting? Let us know what you think and aspects of the play you would find interesting to discuss further on 19th...
