Steven Rendall is the author of Distinguo: Reading Montaigne Differently and has translated numerous books. The story itself (if we may refer to the narrative as such) revolves around the simple act of reading, only made not-so-simple by the rather obsessive narrator. An obscure, unfamiliar book surfaces in the narrator's home, which opens with a hostile diatribe against reading any further: "Come on, dump this book.

Most modern critics (even those who have emphasized the "evolution" of Montaigne's ideas) have sought to explain away the contradictions and incoherences of Montaigne's Essais. Rendall investigates the role of these internal differences in the opinions recorded, in voices and modes of discourse, in logical levels, in conceptions of writing and of reading, through a series of careful, lucid readings of selected passages of Essais. The author tracks their operation in the text and shows how Montaigne's writing constantly recontextualizes his own discourse--through his practice of interpolating new material in successive editions and adding new chapters--as well as that of other authors through quotation, paraphrase, and commentary. Rather than merely negative features, Rendall argues that such "differences" are essential to a practice of writing that both defines and challenges a notion of "unity" and can be seen as an uneasy and disturbing element related to a historical shift from earlier ways of controlling meaning to one based on "the author function." This careful and lucid book presents a fresh and significant interpretation of the Essais and shows how Montaigne's work might be read in a "different" way.
