About the book:

Nietzsche said that he never travelled anywhere without a volume of Emerson's essays in his pocket, while Mathew Arnold described Emerson as 'the greatest prose writer of the century'. It is a remarkable writer who could at once appeal to a man considered a pillar of Victorian society, and to a man dedicated to bringing down such pillars.

In his own time Emerson was considered a profoundly radical thinker, but after his death he was increasingly seen as a bland Boston Brahmin, contentedly ripening with the new England melons, benignly meditating on such viperous notions as the Oversoul.He is now appreciated as one of the truly seminal American writers, refusing all orthodoxies, complacencies and fixitiesboth a truly celebratory and deeply adversarial thinker.

A unique paperback edition, with introduction and chronology of Emerson's life and times.
