Mišelis Montenis "Esė"
By Ingrida Bakutyte
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 43,180. Language: Lithuanian. Published: March 13, 2013. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
Šiame leidinyje rasite Mišelio de Montenio "Esė" skyrius nuo I iki XXIV. Pirmasis „Esė“ rinkinukas lietuvių kalba pasirodė 1983 m. (vertėja D. Droblytė). Pernelyg bijota cenzūros, todėl buvo vykdoma griežta tekstų atranka. Nemaža “Esė” dalis vis dar lieka neišversta. Reikia tikėti, kad ateityje visą Montenio kūrinį galėsime skaityti gimtąja kalba.
