message 1: by Shelley (new)

Shelley What translation of Montaigne do you recommend and why? I thought the Florio translation was terrible and I'm trying to get through the Frame translation but it's also a struggle to read. What about the Screech translation? Or anyone else? I know that the writing is from the 1500's but I would have thought that someone could smooth out the style for modern readers. I feel like I need a translation of the translation.
