Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In the mid-19th century, Romantic literature was still in full bloom across the West, but some American authors began producing literature that, while still Romantic, was unique enough to be considered a different genre. This new genre, Transcendentalism, focused on the spirituality of the self and nature, not rejecting religion outright but concentrating on pragmatism and the importance of individuals as the spiritual center of the cosmos. In addition to drawing upon the Age of Enlightenment, Transcendentalist authors also utilized the philosophy of Plato, who taught that self-fulfillment through attaining knowledge should be an individual s ultimate goal. The leader of Transcendentalism and the man who ushered the movement s practices and literature was Ralph Waldo Emerson (1802-1883), one of America s most famous writers and speakers. Whereas Romantic literature typically took the form of poetry, novels and short stories, much of Emerson s writings disregarded those traditional structures and were written as essays. Emerson initiated Transcendentalism with the publishing of his essay Nature in 1836, which espoused the virtues of nature and the interconnectedness of all life in nature. With his focus on the environment and natural history, Emerson became the first major American writer whose work was not influenced in any way by European literature. But Emerson didn t just write Transcendentalist literature; he practiced what he preached. Now at the forefront of a movement, Emerson established group meetings, gave a series of lectures, and helped produce a Transcendentalist publication in the 1840s, which included his famous essay Self-Reliance. As Emerson s movement and stature grew, he befriended other authors, including Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, and Henry David Thoreau, who became his greatest protege. Thoreau in particular took a keen interest in the idea of getting in touch with nature, writing in Walden, Most of the luxuries and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind. American Legends: The Life of Ralph Waldo Emerson looks at the life and work of Emerson and the movement he helped lead. Along with pictures, you will learn about Ralph Waldo Emerson like you never have before, in no time at all. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781512307917

Item Description: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of the United States most well known authors, and one whose work is still read by every student in the country. Emerson was a lecturer, essayist and poet who became the champion of individualism and ended up becoming the Father of the Transcendentalist movement by the mid-1830s. By the middle of the century, he had published dozens of essays and given thousands of lectures on topics like self-reliance, avoiding conformity, and highlighting the connection between men and their environment. When asked to sum up his work, Emerson explained that he believed in the infinitude of the private man. Emerson s most groundbreaking work was Nature, an essay that became the foundation of Transcendentalism. Nature espoused an appreciation of nature and argued that there were inherent ties between nature and life, and Nature is often considered the first truly American work, in the sense that it did not derive its topic or writing style from Europe first. It also reflected the unique natural environments found across America. Henry David Thoreau was heavily influenced by Nature, which he read while at Harvard. Thoreau later became a protege of Emerson s and went on to live at and write about Walden as a result. In 1844, Emerson collected his lectures, poems, and writings and transformed them into the First Series and Second Series of Essays. The Essays discuss Emerson s views concerning transcendentalism. Some of the most notable essays in the collection are The American Scholar, Nature, Self-Reliance, Compensation, The Over-Soul, and Circles. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781519450036

Emerson, Ralph Waldo (1803-1882). -- Philosopher, was b. at Boston, Massachusetts. His f. was a minister there, who had become a Unitarian, and who d. in 1811, leaving a widow with six children, of whom Ralph, then aged 8, was the second. Mrs. E. was, however, a woman of energy, and by means of taking boarders managed to give all her sons a good education. E. entered Harvard in 1817 and, after passing through the usual course there, studied for the ministry, to which he was ordained in 1827, and settled over a congregation in his native city. There he remained until 1832, when he resigned, ostensibly on a difference of opinion with his brethren on the permanent nature of the Lord s Supper as a rite, but really on a radical change of view in regard to religion in general, expressed in the maxim that the day of formal religion is past. About the same time he lost his young wife, and his health, which had never been robust, showed signs of failing. In search of recovery he visited Europe, where he met many eminent men and formed a life-long friendship with Carlyle. On his return in 1834 he settled at Concord, and took up lecturing. In 1836 he pub. Nature, a somewhat transcendental little book which, though containing much fine thought, did not appeal to a wide circle. The American Scholar followed in 1837. Two years previously he had entered into a second marriage. His influence as a thinker rapidly extended, he was regarded as the leader of the transcendentalists, and was one of the chief contributors to their organ, The Dial. The remainder of his life, though happy, busy, and influential, was singularly uneventful. In 1847 he paid a second visit to England, when he spent a week with Carlyle, and delivered a course of lectures in England and Scotland on Representative Men, which he subsequently pub. English Traits appeared in 1856. In 1857 The Atlantic Monthly was started, and to it he became a frequent contributor. In 1874 he was nominated for the Lord Rectorship of the Univ. of Glasgow, but was defeated by Disraeli. He, however, regarded his nomination as the greatest honour of his life. After 1867 he wrote little. He d. on April 27, 1882. His works were coll. in 11 vols., and in addition to those above mentioned include Essays (two series), Conduct of Life, Society and Solitude, Natural History of Intellect, and Poems. The intellect of E. was subtle rather than robust, and suggestive rather than systematic. He wrote down the intuitions and suggestions of the moment, and was entirely careless as to whether these harmonised with previous statements. He was an original and stimulating thinker and writer, and wielded a style of much beauty and fascination. His religious views approached more nearly to Pantheism than to any other known system of belief. He was a man of singular elevation and purity of character. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781496187536

Representative Men Ralph Waldo Emerson Representative Men is a collection of seven lectures by Ralph Waldo Emerson, published as a book of essays in 1850. The first essay discusses the role played by great men in society, and the remaining six each extoll the virtues of one of six men deemed by Emerson to be great: Plato ( the Philosopher ) Emanuel Swedenborg ( the Mystic ) Michel de Montaigne ( the Skeptic ) William Shakespeare ( the Poet ) Napoleon ( the Man of the World ) Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ( the Writer ) The work was described by Matthew Arnold as the most important work done in prose. 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. Emerson gradually moved away from the religious and social beliefs of his contemporaries, formulating and expressing the philosophy of Transcendentalism in his 1836 essay, Nature. Following this ground-breaking work, he gave a speech entitled The American Scholar in 1837, which Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. considered to be America s Intellectual Declaration of Independence.

Item Description: Oxford University Press, Oxford, London, New York, Toronto, &c., 1991. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. BRILLIANT: ENGROSSING: COMPELLING: CLASSIC: NEW 1st edition hardcover (1991) printing unstated, strikingly handsome new full-color illus. mylar-protected jacket w/ sharp new edges & corners w/ titles elegantly presented on front panel & on spine (no price shown), pristine smooth-cut text-block exterior, superb new Oxford-blue library-durable fabric cover w/ sharp new edges & corners & titles handsomely gilt-stamped on front panel & on gilt-bordered spine, excellent new sewn binding w/ tight signatures & crimson-gold cloth banding at spine-caps, impeccable cream-white end-papers, pristine interior printed w/ striking elegance & clarity on excellent paper * 5.75" x 8.75" x 2.0", 0.94 kg, xxiv+680 (704) pp. * When Montaigne developed the essay in the 16th century, he could not have imagined the power & longevity of his creation. "He did not set up for a philosopher, wit, orator, or moralist," wrote Hazlitt, "but he became all these by merely daring to tell us whatever passed through his mind." Ever since writers have seized upon his example & for over 400 years we have encountered astonishing insights & breathtaking language in their essays. John Gross, former editor of The New York Times Book Review, here has gathered some of the finest of these essays in this outstanding anthology. Ranging from the early 1600s through the 1980s, this sweeping collection includes 140 essays by 120 of the finest writers in the history of the English language. John Gross has collected classics & rare gems, representative samples & personal favorites, intimate essays & learned, serious reflections & hysterically funny satire, by both British & American writers. Here is Evelyn Waugh, providing tips on how to move in Well-Informed Circles ("Attribute all facts of common knowledge to personal information; for instance, do not say, 'What a wet week it has been,' but, 'They tell me at Greenwich they have registered the highest rainfall for six weeks'"); Ralph Waldo Emerson on conservatism & innovation; Ambrose Bierce on "the horror of the characteristic American custom of promiscuous, unsought, & unauthorized introductions"; Oscar Wilde on the critic as artist ("It is only about things that do not interest one that one can give a really unbiased opinion, which is no doubt the reason why an unbiased opinion is always absolutely valueless"); Rose Macaulay on dinner parties; & James Baldwin, musing about what a remote Swiss village tells him about race in the wider world. The authors Gross has gathered form a gallery of genius, all indispensable masters of rhetoric, from Samuel Butler to Samuel Johnson, from John Dryden to Ben Franklin, from George Eliot to George Bernard Shaw, from E.B. White to Joan Didion. Including book reviews & travel sketches, history lessons & meditations, reflections on art & on potato chips, these essays sample four centuries of eloquence & insight in a collection that is at once immensely enlightening, edifying, & entertaining. * The author of "The Rise and Fall of the Man of Letters" & editor of "The Oxford Book of Aphorisms", John Gross was also editor of The New York Times Book Review & The Times Literary Supplement & was theater critic for The Sunday Telegraph.
