Audible Editor Reviews

Here, Neville Jason shares three works by French Renaissance writer Michel de Montaigne: "Of Idleness", "Of Quick or Slow Speech", and "That We Should Not Judge of Our Happiness Until After Our Death". These nuggets of wisdom from the 16th century have inspired great thinkers for centuries and are foundational to modern skepticism. Jason's performance gives these thought-provokers their due, handling challenging Latin quotations with aplomb. Though the syntax is a tad antiquated, Jason's clear articulation helps ease the experience. Instead of taking a break to watch TV, give your brain something quick and fascinating to chew on with Neville Jason's collected famous audio essays.

Publisher's Summary

This is an essay from the Favorite Essays collection.

Here, in this unusual collection, are some of the greatest essays in Western literature. Witty, informative and imaginative, the topics vary from starvation in Ireland, fine China, the extension of railways in the Lake District, and the tombs in Westminster Abbey. A little like after-dinner monologues, they are passing thoughts expressed as journalism. Neville Jason reads with urbane clarity.
