Customer Review

on 11 December 2013
The theory of books is indeed noble, as Ralph Waldo Emerson rightly tells us in The American Scholar. This audio track inspired me to read the text and I ended up with a book of his poetry which I bought by accident thinking it contained the 'American Scholar' essay.

My only concern is that I still have the words, "the theory of books is noble," and "Ralph Waldo Emerson," popping into my head in a kind of Acid House, heavy-beat rap every so often. The subliminal advertising seems to have worked. I wish I could get it out of my head. It is impossible to forget the sound. Why have you done this to my brain?

I happen to agree with Emerson's love of nature, and perhaps these poems I have found will inspire me. I am not in agreement with what might be termed American exceptionalism, but I can see that a great nation came of the kind of spirit of enterprise that Emerson embodies in his works and in his mindset.
