Book Overview

This first Library of America volume of Emerson's writing covers the most productive period of his life, 1832-1860. 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 are the indispensable and most renowned works, including The American Scholar (our intellectual Declaration of Independence, as Oliver Wendell Holmes called it), The Divinity School Address, considered atheistic by many of his listeners, the summons to Self-Reliance, along with the more embattled realizations of Circles and, especially, Experience. Here, too, are his wide-ranging portraits of Montaigne, Shakespeare, and other representative men, and his astute observations on the habits, lives, and prospects of the English and American people.

This volume includes Emerson's well-known Nature; Addresses, and Lectures (1849), his Essays: First Series (1841) and Essays: Second Series (1844), plus Representative Men (1850), English Traits (1856), and his later book of essays, The Conduct of Life (1860). These are the works that established Emerson's colossal reputation in America and found him admirers abroad as diverse as Carlyle, Nietzsche, and Proust.
