?A faithful translation is rare; a translation which preserves intact the original text is very rare; a perfect translation of Montaigne appears impossible. Yet Donald Frame has realized this feat. One does not seem to be reading a translation, so smooth and easy is the style; at each moment, one seems to be listening to Montaigne himself?the freshness of his ideas, the unexpected choice of words. Frame has kept everything.? ? Andre Maurois, The New York Times Book Review
