The Selected Letters of Ralph Waldo Emerson Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1939 Columbia University Press published the acclaimed first volume of The Letters of Ralph Waldo Emerson, which presented a deeply personal portrait of the real Emerson, previously unknown to the American public. Through these letters readers gained a new insight into the mind of this seminal figure in American literary and intellectual history. Now, for the first time, readers can find Emerson's best letters distilled in one volume. Distinguished Emerson scholar Joel Myerson has selected 350 letters written between 1813 and 1880 that best represents the scope of Emerson's correspondence.

Book News Annotation:

For scholars who have, or want, a life beyond Emerson studies, distills the ten volumes and 4,500 letters in the 1939 collection to 350 that Myerson has selected as the most enduring. Written between 1813 and 1880, they include letters to Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, his wife and brothers, and friends like Longfellow and Whitman. Support material includes a chronology, biographies of correspondents, and an index of names.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The Selected Letters of Ralph Waldo Emerson presents Emerson at his most guarded and his most vulnerable, writing to other Transcendentalists such as Henry David Thoreau and Margaret Fuller, to his wife and brothers, to friends like Longfellow and Whitman. With effusions of love, messages of condolence, letters of support for Thoreau and Whitman, and critiques of friends' writings, this extraordinary collection presents an Emerson deeply connected to the world around him.

Synopsis:

Virtually no writer has so influenced American thought as Ralph Waldo Emerson--called the heart and soul of Transcendentalism. Here renowned Emerson scholar Joel Myerson distills the essential core of this great thinker's vast letter-writing endeavors into one volume, presenting a collection of 350 pieces of correspondence written between 1813 and 1880. Emerson is revealed as thoroughly engaged with the vital issues of his day.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 13-15) and index.
