Ralph Waldo Emerson (Author). Emerson is to the literary world in America as Lincoln was to the political world in the 1860's.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (Author). Find all the books, read about the author, and more. His stature as a thinker, writer and public figure to admire brought American literature to new heights. I think Thoreau has more relevance to us in the year 2004, and had profounder insights, but Emerson, more the academic and intellectual, wrote with the elegance and intelligence of the gods.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) was an American essayist, lecturer, philosopher, 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.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) is known best in the twenty-first century as a literary innovator and early architect of American intellectual culture, but his writings still offer spiritual sustenance to the thoughtful reader.

Стр. 324 - The German and Irish millions, like the Negro, have a great deal. of guano in their destiny. They are ferried over the Atlantic, and carted over America, to ditch and to drudge, to make corn cheap, and then to lie down prematurely to make a spot of green grass on the prairie.

It’s Emerson! What more needs to be said?
  • Arar
Being heavily into Shakespeare, I read Harold Bloom`s book with greatest interet and his referring to Emersons book on remarkable men, and HIS views on various authors, and his influence on poets of his time, and previous authors, It is amazing to compare the two, and I had great pleasure to gain knowledge of specially American poets from this book ! A good guidance to further reading ! Ingrid Birkeland

His greatest book!
  • Silverbrew
Love it....Love it! I have been trying to find the book, but I guess an electronic copy works better since I will forever own it on my kindle!
  • Xava
This is a classic that all should read once in their life.
  • Zeleence
Emerson's essay "The Writer" is about Goethe. I found Emerson's praise for this author helpful in trying understand Abraham Lincoln.

this is one of my favorite Emerson works. It opens itself up to so much, talking about his theories of influence, precursing everything from queer theory and gender transitivity to Harold Bloom, and it is a poem, too. It's beautiful. It offers his thoughts on the most diverse materials, gets into the most detail on his Hindu readings, gets very brave in "Swedenborg." But ... for a 165-page book? Delbanco's intro is boring and useless. Don't even READ it before you read the book. It'll be like watching an educational video on yeast infections before watching a porno. The index is a kind of neat feature; it's cool to see how many men are mentioned how many times. For example, the most obvious 'omission' in the book, JESUS, is mentioned only 5 times in the book, but he lurks throughout in so many ways. I love the book, but think the edition is a huge ripoff. However, it is difficult to find all these essays in one volume without buying a "complete works" or something, and they are ALL good and work together as a complete 'book,' one essay building off the prior in subject and time, going from B.C. to the nineteenth century, from Plato to Napoleon and Goethe.
Great men are those who inspire new great men into being. So Emerson understood in his seven portraits of human greatness. The poet Shakespeare and the philosopher Plato, the skeptic Montaigne and the mystic Swedenborg,the man of the world Napoleon and the writer Goethe.

Of great men he said,"Nature seems to exist for the excellent. The world is upheld by the veracity of good men: they make the earth wholesome. They who lived with them found life glad and nutritious..... We call our children and our lands by their names. Their names are wrought into the verbs of language, their works and effigies are in our houses, and every circumstance of the day recalls an anecdote of them."

It is interesting that of Emerson's great men two would certainly be in question today. Swedenborg does not have the followers in our day that he had in Emerson's. Napoleon today can be considered in these terms only if we are also willing to discuss the horrible aspect of conqueror- great- men and the millions of dead that come with the conquests.

Emerson a sublime argument for his conception of ' the great man', of the unique character who makes a gift to Mankind no one else has or can .
