In his Confessions, Jean-Jacques Rousseau chronicles his life, from the formative years of his impoverished youth in Geneva, through his international success as a novelist and philosopher in Paris, to his wanderings as an exile, persecuted by governments and cut off from the world of contemporary civilization.
Rousseau analyzes the relationship between an elusive but essential inner self and the myriad of social identities he was led to assume with uncommon insight in an effort to explain who he was and how he came to be the target of others' adulation and abuse.
