Receiving treatment he had never experienced at home, he turned to an internal world populated by figures much like those his reading. He did this not out of spite or contempt for other people, but because he really wanted an affection that he couldn't receive from those around him. Those are just the first hundred pages of a much longer work, but it's easy to understand how the moral and social idealist grew out of the child.
Rousseau wrote the second six books at a later date, considering them as separate though related. The earlier writers were not immune to the temptation that leads our contemporaries to author pieces such as "The return of x " or " Y comes back" or "Son of z. Indeed, I found the second part much less vibrant than the first. Reading it was a bit of chore. It is full of matter-of-fact reports that form an accurate journal of Rousseau's life, but relatively seldom are of interest in themselves.
La philosophie dans le boudoir by Donatien alphonse de Sade
By the time he wrote it, he was a celebrity. His life, like those of many other celebrities and politicians, was full of jealousies, resentments, feuds, cabals and plots. These are dirty linen being washed in public. It was of interest noting the continuity between the child, the public figure, and the writer.
In all of these roles, Rousseau was very much the individual and individualist. The needs expectations of society clearly came afterwards. So, it is not surprising that he had difficulty fitting in with the society around him, offending many and ultimately being driven into exile. It is an intense internal story. The Princesse resists the suitor's efforts, but not before they become visible and commented upon in court. Her husband mistakenly believes that she has succumbed, takes ill, and dies, despite ultimately recognizing his wife's innocence. She is then free to marry the suitor, but does not because his character would not make him a good match.
The story initially is one of the Princess preserving her virtue, well told but hardly unusual.

The twist that she does not gratify her own passion once she has a legitimate chance is off of the beaten track, a strong resolution evincing the internal strength of her character. The main character is the most immature, self-centered flake I have run across in anything I can remember ever having read.
The author's disregard, or likelier total lack of appreciation, for the craft of writing has all the capricious, oblivious individuality of her heroine. Montaigne was one of the mysterious writers included in the Britannica Great Books of the Western World , a ponderous presence on library shelves in my grade school days. The collection is often criticized, either on the grounds that it is impossible to make any sensible selection from the countless possibilities, or that the editors made the wrong selections, or that the art and knowledge of the West are only drops in a much more meaningful bucket.
Be that as it may, Montaigne is included and has had much influence on others later in the canon. He was also heavily influenced by writers early in the canon. In a way, this is curious, because Montaigne's thought is nothing if not questioning. He himself, in the noted essay De la institution des enfants On the Education of Children , rails against rote learning, in particular of ancient languages and lore. Yet he continually cites passages from the Greek and Latin classics to illustrate and support his own points.
At any rate, he is very good.

Montaigne is an original thinker, always ready to question, not for the sake of being contentious, but for the sake of understanding. He is an adult's writer, so looking back I am not surprised that in grade school I could make nothing of him. I started reading the Essais two and a half years ago, when I spent hours with my mother in the last phase of her life. Montaigne certainly does rank as of one of the great figures of Western literature, in my belief.
His style is deeply penetrating though wandering. He questions everything, ending up believing in our human nature and in the thinking of the early Greek and Roman philosphers. I read Malraux's La condition humaine many years ago with interest.
It's probably time for a rereading of that, but at the present I will read L'espoir , which will be new to me. Hope is a good topic. I put this down after reading some pages, about half of it. Each day, I found myself dreading opening it up more and more, and managing to make less and less progress before setting it aside as hopelessly tedious and vacuous.
