The selected lectures of Ralph Waldo Emerson by Ralph Waldo Emerson( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the fust and only comprehensive selection of lectures by Ralph Waldo Emerson, his era's most prominent American man of letters and one of the foremost architects of our intellectual culture. Best known to his contemporaries as a lecturer, Emerson delivered some 1,500 addresses over the course of his career. Because his most important ideas were worked out in his lectures, they provide the best record we have of his evolving thought-and thus are a key to understanding his essays and other printed works." "Based on authoritative texts selected and edited by Ronald A. Bosco and Joel Myerson-the most experienced Emerson editors working today-these twenty-five addresses from 1833 to 1871 on American culture; literary theory and aesthetics; moral and, as Emerson called it, "intellectual" philosophy; and social and political reform collectively exemplify the lecture style for which Emerson was famed in his day.

Hawthorne in his own time : a biographical chronicle of his life, drawn from recollections, interviews, and memoirs by family, friends, and associates by Ronald A Bosco( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At his death, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864) was universally acknowledged in America and England as "the Great Romancer." Novels such as The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables and stories published in such collections as Twice-Told Tales continue to capture the minds and imaginations of readers and critics to this day. Harder to capture, however, were the character and personality of the man himself. So few of the essays that appeared in the two years after his death offered new insights into his life, art, and reputation that Hawthorne seemed fated to premature obscurity or, at
Ralph Waldo Emerson : the major prose by Ralph Waldo Emerson( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Upon its completion, The Collected Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson (1971-2013) was hailed as a major achievement of scholarship and textual editing. Drawing from the ten volumes of the Collected Works, Ronald A. Bosco and Joel Myerson have gathered some of Emerson's most memorable prose published during his lifetime and under his direct supervision. The editors have enhanced those selections with additional writings to produce the only anthology that represents in a single volume the full range of Emerson's written and spoken prose genres--sermons, lectures, addresses, and essays--that took on their public life in the pulpit or lecture hall, or on the printed page. Ralph Waldo Emerson: The Major Prose demonstrates the remarkable scope of Emerson's interests, from science, literature, art, philosophy, natural history, and religion to pressing social issues such as slavery and women's rights, to the character of his contemporaries, including Lincoln and Thoreau. Emerson's classic essays Nature, "Self-Reliance," and "Experience" complement his less familiar but no less vital texts, including the deeply heterodox sermon on "The Lord's Supper," which effectively announced his resignation from the ministry, and late essays on "American Civilization," "Character," and "Works and Days." Edited according to the most rigorous modern standards, Ralph Waldo Emerson: The Major Prose provides an authoritative compendium of writings by one of America's most significant literary figures and public intellectuals."--Publisher's description

Letters and social aims by Ralph Waldo Emerson( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emerson traveled broadly in England and Scotland in 1833 and again on lecture tour fifteen years later. Drawing on his experiences there as well as his wide reading in British history, he set forth in English Traits his view of the English as a nation." "English Traits is a searching and distinctive portrayal of English culture that today offers a revealing perspective on American viewpoints and preoccupations in the mid-nineteenth century. It is notable, too, for revealing an interesting side of Emerson's complex character; here we find Emerson the practical Yankee, analyzing English power, resourcefulness, determination, and materialism."--Jacket
