An amalgamation of two books published in 1841 and 1844, the 21 pieces known as "Essays: First and Second Series" describe Emerson's concepts of self-reliance, the law of compensation (a sort of yin-yang polarity in morality), and the transcendental Over-Soul, an ideal Emerson first enunciated (without naming it as such) in his infamous Divinity School Address, for which he was accused of atheism. "The world is not the product of manifold power, but of one will, of one mind; and that one mind is everywhere active," he said to Harvard's startled divinity students and teachers. "All things proceed out of the same spirit." In these essays, he expands upon this notion of the individual Self as part of a universal All, of the human soul bound by a physical body yet tethered to an omniscient spirit

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

175 editions published between 1836 and 2021 in 7 languages and held by 2,981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Nature' was Emerson's first book, and one of his earliest formulations of the vision we call Transcendentalism, with its celebration of spiritual meaning throughout the physical universe... 'Walking,' by contrast, was one of Thoreau's last published works. It was printed posthumously in The Atlantic of Autumn 1862. Nonetheless, as a lecture which Thoreau presented many times before Lyceum audiences during the preceding eleven years, 'Walking' had long been one of his best-known compositions... But throughout the subsequent tradition of American nature writing, there are the concerns and images, even the specific vocabulary, of a nature writer's voice that Emerson invented and Thoreau developed"--from Introduction (pages vii-ix)

Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803? April 27, 1882) was an American essayist, philosopher, poet, and leader of the Transcendentalist movement in the early 19th century. His teachings directly influenced the growing New Thought movement of the mid 1800s. Emerson gradually moved away from the religious and social beliefs of his contemporaries, formulating and expressing the philosophy of Transcendentalism in his 1836 essay, Nature. As a result of this ground breaking work he gave a speech entitled The American Scholar in 1837, which Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. considered to be America's "Inte

This collection of Emerson's essays covers the contents of two volumes originally published in 1841 and 1844. Annotation. Our most eloquent champion of individualism, Emerson acknowledges at the same time the countervailing pressures of society in American life.

Here, too, are his wide-ranging discourses on history, art, politics, nature, friendship, love, and much more.
