One of the most significant men of letters in American history, Ralph Waldo Emerson was not only acquainted with the most prominent authors, reformers, and politicians of his day, but also had daily contact with such literary figures as Thoreau, Hawthorne, Margaret Fuller, and Bronson Alcott. Based on journals, correspondence, reminiscences, newspaper articles, and many other sources of information, this detailed chronology of the life of Emerson offers a daily accounting of what he read and wrote, where he traveled, who he saw, and his thoughts and opinions concerning the events and personalities of his day. All of his speeches are accounted for and, indeed, this volume provides the most complete and accurate record of his public appearances available. An Emerson Chronology is an important resource for students of nineteenth-century American literature, history, religion, and philosophy
Ralph Waldo Emerson : the major poetry by Ralph Waldo Emerson( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ralph Waldo Emerson: The Major Poetry, like its companion prose volume, presents a selection of definitively edited texts. Accompanying each poem is a headnote prepared by Albert von Frank for the student and general reader, which serves as an entryway to the poem, offering critical and historical contexts. Detailed annotations provide further guidance. A master of the essay form, a philosopher of moods and self-reliance, and the central figure in the American romantic movement, Emerson makes many claims on our attention. Ralph Waldo Emerson: The Major Poetry reminds us exactly why his poetry also matters and why he remains one of our most important theoreticians of verse. Emerson saw his poetry and philosophy as coordinate ways of seeing the world. "It is not metres," he once declared, "but a metre-making argument, that makes a poem,--a thought so passionate and alive, that, like the spirit of a plant or an animal, it has an architecture of its own, and adorns nature with a new thing." All the major poems published in Emerson's lifetime--chosen from Poems (1847), May-Day and Other Pieces (1867), and Selected Poems (1876) as well as uncollected poems--are represented here. Also included in an appendix is the first selection ever made of the poems and poetic fragments that Emerson addressed to his first wife, Ellen, during their courtship and marriage and concluding with the anguish of bereavement following her death on February 8, 1831, at the age of nineteen." -- Publisher's description
