Description

Explore the beliefs of the Transcendentalists, who herald the importance of a direct relationship with God and with nature, and the social and political reasons for the rise of the movement. You'll also gain insight into the two central figures of American Transcendentalists: Ralph Waldo Emerson, author of Nature, the essay "Experience," and the famous "Divinity School Address"; and Henry David Thoreau, author of A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, Civil Disobedience, and of course, Walden.show more
