More About The Confessions and Correspondence, Including the Letters to Malesherbes by Jean Jacques Rousseau; Christopher Kelly; Roger D. MastersOverviewIn one of the first attempts at autobiography, Rousseau's Confessions not only retells the facts of the author's life, but reveals his innermost feelings and details the strengths and weaknesses of his character. Much more than a "behind-the-scenes look at the private life of a public man", Christopher Kelly writes, "the Confessions is at the center of Rousseau's philosophical enterprise".
"An English translation of the French classic has to bear comparison with J. M. Cohen's Penguia Classics version of 1953. Kelly passes that test with flying colors ... This will certainly endure as the work of reference in English". -- Eugen Weber, Civilization
