AUTHOR

Emerson, Ralph Waldo, Richardson, Robert D., Jr.

SUMMARY

The writings featured here show Emerson as a protester against social conformity, a lover of nature, an activist for the rights of women and slaves, and a poet of great sensitivity. As explored in this volume, Emersonian thought is a unique blend of belief in individual freedom and in humility before the power of nature. "I become a transparent eyeball," Emerson wrote in Nature, "I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or parcel of God." Written over a century ago, this passage is a striking example of the passion and originality of Emerson's ideas, which continue to serve as a spiritual center and an ideological base for modern thought. Featured here are seminal works such as Nature, "Self-Reliance," "The Over-Soul," and early essays and lectures such as the "Cherokee Letter" and "Pray Without Ceasing." This collection also offers Emerson's most important poetry, including "The Sphinx" and "Days."Emerson, Ralph Waldo is the author of 'Ralph Waldo Emerson Selected Essays, Lectures and Poems', published 1990 under ISBN 9780553213881 and ISBN 0553213881.
