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 is a collection of his classic essays, including the exhortation to "Self-Reliance" and the embattled realizations of "Circles" and "Experience." Here, too, are his wide-ranging discourses on history, art, politics, nature, friendship, love, and much more.

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.

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

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

Heroism : an essay by Ralph Waldo Emerson( Book )

16 editions published between 1885 and 2010 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does it take to be a hero? What is heroic? Who is a hero? Although it is not often considered to be among Ralph Waldo Emerson's "essential" readings, "Heroism," is a thought provoking and inspiring piece, worthy of its place on the bookshelves of Emerson enthusiasts. In this brief essay, Emerson, in his bold and yet carefully chosen tone attempts to define the essence of heroes. Keeping in line with his doctrine of self-reliance, Emerson believes that every person has the innate ability to become a hero. Heroic traits are not limited to a select few, but instead, are only exhibited by those who accept themselves and endeavor to maintain self-trust and consistency in their actions. Emerson writes, "The characteristic of a genuine heroism is its persistency. All men have wandering impulses, fits and starts of generosity. But when you have resolved to be great, abide by yourself, and do not weakly try to reconcile yourself with the world. The heroic cannot be the common, nor the common the heroic."
