This review is from: Nature and Selected Essays (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
This book took me bloody loooonnnnggg time to get through as it was so tough trying to understand the 19th C US English and Emerson's poetic style. But once you get to understand his work, you do appreciate his insights. There are some things I don't totally agree with (his worship of nature is unreal. I love nature and all but can't see where all the love up comes from being a city lad). I think I am going to see if I can get some commentary book on it as I don't think I fully understand it still. Oh, the penguin version is a really really physically lush book.
