"Both a historical recovery and a critical rethinking of the functions and practices of textbooks, Archives of Instruction: Nineteenth-Century Rhetorics, Readers, and Composition Books in the United States argues for an alternative understanding of our rhetorical traditions. Jean Ferguson Carr, Stephen L. Carr, and Lucille M. Schultz describe how the pervasive influence and sophistication of nineteenth-century literacy textbooks demonstrate the early emergence of substantive instruction in reading and writing."--BOOK JACKET

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. Even as he extols what he called "the great and crescive self," he dramatizes and records its vicissitudes. 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. For the first time, the authoritative editions of works by major American novelists, poets, scholars, and essayists collected in the hardcover volumes of The Library of America are being published singly in a series of handsome and durable paperback books. A distinguished author has contributed an introduction for each volume, which also includes a detailed chronology of the author's life and career, an essay on the choice of the text, and notes

"Following the success of his first series of essays, Emerson offered the public his insights into additional facets of the human condition... Best known for his essay on 'Nature', Emerson once again demonstrates a vision that is both down-to-earth and deeply numinous, giving the reader a host of new perspectives from which to view the mysteries and seeming contradictions of Existence." --Back cover
