Portable Emerson

$23.00

Ralph Waldo Emerson’s diverse body of work has done more than perhaps any other thinker to shape and define the American mind. Literary giants including Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Walt Whitman were among Emerson’s admirers and protégés, while his central text, Nature, single handedly engendered an entire spiritual and intellectual movement in transcendentalism. This long-awaited update of the classic Portable Emerson—the first in more than thirty years—presents the core of Emerson’s writings, including Nature and The American Scholar, along with revelatory journal entries, letters, poetry, and a sermon. Edited by Jeffrey S. Cramer, award-winning scholar and Curator of Collections at the Walden Woods Project’s Thoreau Institute.
