Montaigne's Essays resemble a patchwork of personal reflections, but they engage with questions that animate the human mind, and tend to a single goal: to live better in the present and to prepare for death. For this reason, Montaigne's thought and writings have been a subject of enduring interest across disciplines. This Handbook brings together essays by prominent scholars that examine Montaigne's literary, philosophical, and political contributions, and
assess his legacy and relevance today in a global perspective. It presents Montaigne's Essays not only in their historical context but also as a starting point for discussing issues that concern us today.

Scott M. Francis, Renaissance Quarterly In conclusion, it is in the domain of pedagogy that The Oxford Handbook of Montaigne has the potential to shine the brightest. It can provide instructors not only with a sense of what is at stake in Montaigne, but with an idea of what essays to assign or excerpt, as well as readymade secondary readings and useful, albeit somewhat scant, suggestions for further reading. Hopefully, Desan and his fellow contributors have started a trend that will someday see
Oxford Handbooks for other luminaries of early modern France.

John McClelland, Renaissance and Reformation This is obviously a book that the reader delves into as the need arises. ... [the chapters] are all learned, they are all informative, and they all make us think about Montaigne in ways that diverge from tradition. Most importantly, they are almost all stimulating to read.
