Description

Oliver Wendell Holmes claimed Ralph Waldo Emerson's lecture "The American Scholar" was an intellectual Declaration of Independence. Indeed, Emerson was at the center of the American Renaissance and Transcendentalist philosophy. Collectively, his essays and lectures gave shape to nearly all that followed in American literature. Emerson's Essays presents scholarly criticism on the major works of this famous American writer. This engrossing volume is sure to be a top-notch resource for those seeking to explore Emerson's concepts, which are as relevant today as they were more than 100 years ago.
