Product Description

Review

"This volume is a comprehensive portrait of Emerson's intellectual development, one that offers a view from a fresh and revealing angle. We see the Emerson that his contemporaries would have seen--the public lecturer. This is an outstanding work that will add much to the understanding of both Emerson's career and the culture to which he spoke with such tireless commitment."--David M. Robinson, author of "Natural Life: Thoreau's Worldly Transcendentalism" and "Emerson and the Conduct of Life"

"The principles from which Ronald Bosco and Joel Myerson work are exemplary. They are the most experienced of Emerson's editors currently working, and their work in this volume is impeccable."--Robert Hudspeth, editor of "The Correspondence of Henry D. Thoreau"

"One of the immensely valuable contributions made by Ronald A. Bosco and Joel Myerson in offering this selection of twenty-five of the more than fifteen hundred lectures spanning Emerson's career [is] that it permits us to see not only how versatile he was in adapting his ministerial purpose to secular ends, but also how deliberate, and therefore all the more remarkable, the style he chiseled in his essays, making the still and silent ciphers resonate with inspired utterance . . . [a] superb addition to Emerson scholarship . . . We owe [Bosco and Myerson] an enormous debt of gratitude."--"Bookforum"

"This is the first and only comprehensive selection of lectures by Ralph Waldo Emerson. . . . Because his most important ideas were worked out in his lectures, they provide the best record we have of his evolving thought--and thus are key to out understanding of his essays and other printed work."--"McCormick Messenger"
