Presenting essays by a distinguished array of contributors, the Companion is a valuable resource for historical and contextual material, whether on early writings such as A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, on the monumental Walden, or on his Journal and later writings. It also serves as a biographical guide, offering insights into his publishing career and his brief but extraordinarily original life. In short, the Companion helps the reader to approach Thoreau's writings, as he would say, "deliberately and reservedly," by suggesting how Thoreau uses language, how his biography informs his writing, how personal and historical influences shaped his career, and how his writings function as literary works+-+3285996705128311ocn005029131book19790.31Antebellum writers in New York and the SouthBio-bibliographyBiographyBiography DictionariesDictionariesBio-bibliography DictionariesContains biographical sketches of authors who wrote or began writing their major works during the period 1820 to 1860.

This is an extensive correspondence, for not counting Waldo's previously published letters, there are 768 letters exchanged among the brothers and an additional 483 unpublished letters from the brothers to their aunt Mary Moody Emerson, mother Ruth Haskins Emerson, and Charles's fiancee Elizabeth Hoar, among others." "While lesser figures might have faltered under the burden of having been born an Emerson, with social, political, and ecclesiastic roots extending back to the first century of New England settlement, the brothers' letters reveal that all were invigorated by a shared sense of origin and aspired to make a significant reputation for themselves. Across six richly developed chapters, the signal events and friendships that shaped the Emerson brothers' lives are strung together to reveal a remarkable family culture. For the first time, The Emerson Brothers treats the illustrious history of the Emerson family in America as a foreshadowing of expectations the brothers inherited; defines the extent of Waldo's debt to William for his encounter with German Biblical Criticism; develops Charles's and Edward's incredibly promising but ultimately tragic lives; examines the profound emotional and intellectual impact of Aunt Mary on the younger Emersons; considers the three-year courtship between Charles and Elizabeth Hoar in the context of Waldo's own marriages; and studies the brothers' preoccupation with financial security for "the family," revealing, too, that finances were at least as powerful a motivation behind Waldo's 1832 resignation from Boston's Second Church as were the death of his first wife and his religious doubts." "This biography approaches Waldo's inner life in a way that makes him a figure to imagine personally by portraying him in relation to his brothers who are his intellectual equals. It offers an imaginative social and cultural history of one of our oldest and most gifted families, unique players in a period often considered to be the "American Renaissance.""--BOOK JACKET+-+718596046512169ocn297116206file20080.37Myerson, JoelFuller in her own time a biographical chronicle of her life, drawn from recollections, interviews, and memoirs by family, friends, and associatesBiographyWriter, editor, journalist, educator, feminist, conversationalist, and reformer Margaret Fuller (1810 - 1850) was one of the leading intellectuals of nineteenth-century America as well as a prominent member of Concord literary circles. Yet the challenging spirit behind her intellectual confidence and mesmerizing energy led to the invention of an unbalanced legacy that denied her a place among the canonical Concord writers. This collection of first-hand reminiscences by those who knew Fuller personally rescues her from these confusions and provides a clearer identity for this misrepresented personality. The forty-one remembrances from Nathaniel Hawthorne, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Carlyle, Harriet Martineau, Henry James, and twenty-four others chart Fullerrs's expanding influence from schooldays in Boston, meetings at the Transcendental Club, teaching in Providence and Boston, work on the New York Tribune, publications and conversations, travels in the British Isles, and life and love in Italy before her tragic early death. Joel Myerson's perceptive introduction assesses the pre- and postmortem building of Fullers' reputation as well as her relationship to the prominent Transcendentalists, reformers, literati, and other personalities of her time, and his headnotes to each selection present valuable connecting contexts. The woman who admitted that at nineteen she was the most intolerable girl that ever took a seat in a drawing-room; whose Woman in the Nineteenth Century is considered the first major book-length feminist call to action in America, never conformed to nineteenth-century expectations of self-effacing womanhood. The fascinating contradictions revealed by these narratives create a lively, lifelike biography of Fullerrs' ; rare gifts and solid acquirements . . . and unfailing intellectual sympathy+-+36414723069887ocn057417714file20000.47Fuller, MargaretMargaret Fuller, critic writings from the New-York Tribune, 1844-1846Criticism, interpretation, etcReviewsCD-ROM contains: Fully searchable version of Fuller's complete writings for the New-York Tribune+-+578666687593812ocn010020972book19840.53Modern Language Association of AmericaThe Transcendentalists : a review of research and criticismBibliographyThe Transcendentalist: a review of research and criticism is the first comprehensive bibliography of American Transcendentalism.

Bibliographer, editor and interpreter of the American Renaissance, Joel Myerson has devoted his academic career to recovering the literary legacy of the Transcendentalists and reconstructing the biographical and historical contexts in which they lived and wrote. This valuable collection gathers together original essays by fourteen scholars who share Joel Myerson's commitment to historically grounded investigations of American literature. Centered on Emerson and his circle, the pieces connect Transcendentalist thought to diverse contexts in antebellum America: family and gender relations, personal and professional friendships, the politics of antislavery, the transatlantic dialogue of American and British intellectuals7756ocn017548688book19820.39Myerson, JoelCritical essays on Henry David Thoreau's Walden7226ocn003547435serial0.56Studies in the American renaissanceCriticism, interpretation, etcPeriodicalsBio-bibliography11ocn213480677mix1.00Association for Documentary EditingAssociation for Documentary Editing recordsRecords and correspondenceThe collection consists largely of correspondence regarding several facets of the Association for Documentary Editing.
