Description
Both St. Augustine?s Confessions and Montaigne?s Essays illuminate the difficulty of achieving what the classical autobiography implicitly promises to the reader and the writer, namely, total self-knowledge, and/or self-mastery. In an organized essay compare and contrast how each author negotiates (i.e. responds to) this difficulty.

Be sure to support your argument with cogent analysis of specific examples from both texts. Papers that rely on opinions or generalizations will automatically receive a failing grade.

3-5 pages
