Moy Qui Me Voy, the phrase is Montaigne's, is concerned with a problem which he and many writers since him have found central to their endeavour: the discovery that, somewhere between the intention and the act of writing, every author has to deal with the question of the self - a shifting entity, both seductive and tiresomely obtrusive, a voice that should, perhaps, be suppressed (Pascal certainly thought so), yet which clamours to be heard - a presence, at all events, always to be reckoned with.
