In 'Montaigne and Shakspere', J.M. Robertson explores the intriguing question of how much influence Michel de Montaigne had on William Shakespeare's work. While there is little doubt that Shakespeare was familiar with Montaigne's Essays, the extent of their impact on the playwright remains a matter of debate. Robertson delves into the evidence, including Shakespeare's use of Montaigne's ideas and even his phrasing in certain passages, and considers the implications of this literary and psychological connection. Despite the fascination of this question, it has been somewhat overlooked in recent years, perhaps due to a general disregard for serious criticism. Robertson's book aims to revive interest in this critical problem, shedding new light on the relationship between two of history's greatest writers.
