About this Item

The green hardcover has gilt lettering to the spine, with minor wear top and bottom. Pages have a slight brownish tinge, with some minor foxing. #Extra postage required for overseas. Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 ¿ April 27, 1882) was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet, who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States. Society and Solitude, first published in 1870, is comprised of lectures turned into essays that Emerson gave over many years as he toured the country. "Eloquence" and "Domestic Life," for example, were early lectures. Those interested in ethical principles will appreciate "Courage" and "Success," whereas those more interested in daily life will appreciate the remaining essays in this volume.
