He is also fond of situating himself in another historical period, chronologically closer to his own time, but equally remote, in a discursive sense, from the age of the courtier (and indeed from any historical reality that ever 34 The performance of nobility existed — a point to which we will return): the ‘‘good old days’’ of the old nobility, when men were men, and discourse was still untainted by the nefarious inﬂuence of the Italians. Montaigne speaks of this time in ‘‘Couardise mere de la cruaute´’’ (II, 27), where he decries the new and pernicious fad of fencing and duels.
The word ‘‘paroles’’ in this context means not so much language per se, but rather an excess of language, a superﬂuity of words — especially the wrong kinds of words, words that are misleading, confusing, or outright false. ²² There, Montaigne discusses at length the form of ‘‘parole’’ appropriate to a person of his station; the backbone of his argument is the famous Senecan dictum (which he cites in a C-text addition, p. 251): Non est ornamentum virile concinnitas. While attacking Cicero (with Pliny the Younger as a corollary ﬁgure) for his vanity and ambition in life, and for his correspondingly vain and pompous style of writing, he holds up Seneca (and Epicurus) as a model both of Stoic virtue in life and of concision, directness, and plenitude in letters.

J’en veux dire premierement cecy, qu’il n’est pas inconvenient d’avoir des conditions et des propensions si propres et si incorpore´es en nous, que nous n’ayons pas moyen de les sentir et reconnoistre.
