Jonathan Swift, Michel de Montaigne, Joseph Addison, Thomas Carlyle, and more
An unusual collection, containing some of the greatest essays in Western literature. Witty, informative, and imaginative, topics vary from starvation in Ireland, fine China, the extension of railways in the Lake District, and the tombs in Westminster Abbey. Akin to after-dinner monologues, they stretch in time from Montaigne's 16th-century France to G.K. Chesterton in the 20th century.
