HyperEssays is a one-person endeavor.

My goals for this project are to create a modern and accessible online edition of Montaigne’s Essays and to provide context and tools for first-time readers, students in particular.

This takes a lot of work: I prepare chapter PDFs (nearly 700 so far), write notes, build and update an index (160 entries and counting), keep track of classical and early modern sources (almost 200 of those), translate, copyedit (in French and in English), design and maintain this website, and more.

If having this kind lasting resource on the Internet matters to you, and if you want to help me keep HyperEssays free and accessible to all, please consider supporting this project by becoming a member.
