About the Author:

Lawrence Buell is Powell M. Cabot Professor of American Literature Emeritus at Harvard University. He is the author of many books, including, most recently, The Dream of the Great American Novel.

Review:

"Lawrence Buell's Literary Transcendentalism is one of the best studies of the literature of the American renaissance to appear in quite some time; it takes what might well be thought academy-worn subjects and says interesting and suggestive things about them. It is the best book I know on the subject of transcendental aesthetics."―Francis Murphy, New England Quarterly



"Buell's wide-ranging, flexible, catholic approach is a match for the diversity and variety of his materials."―Richard A. Betts, College Literature



"Buell's solid grasp of the religiousness of the transcendental literary discipline is a welcome insight. Buell finds that truth and beauty are two sides of the same transcendental coin, and this perception shapes a very fine book."―Catherine Albanese, Church History
