Abstract

Marie de Gournay, Montaigne's covenant daughter, whose relationship with her mentor has been the subject of dispute since the end of the sixteenth century, demonstrated considerable talent of her own, both as Montaigne's intellectual partner in life and as his editor after his death. She perhaps heightened his appreciation of the potential of women.
