Reading Puritan Poetry

Rousseau's Confessions

ConfessionsConfessions by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

"I will none the less continue faithfully to set forth what Jean Jacques Rousseau was, did, and thought, without either explaining or justifying the singularity of his sentiments and ideas."

Well, after working slowly through the two volumes of Rousseau's Confessions in the last year, my main takeaway is that he was a reprehensible human being.
