Will Self on Montaigne (48 Mins)


How does one read Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592)? In a talk held at the Ciné Lumière (French Institute, London) on 20 January 2011, Will Self explained his approach to Montaigne. Self also dropped in conversation his dreams about the Queen, how his six year old son would benefit from reading French, and his solo holidays with the Montaigne Essais.
