"This fascinating biography of one of the leading intellectuals in the Transcendentalist movement brings together an intimate insight into Parker's personal life with a vivid depiction of the European cultures that engaged him. Dean Grodzins has opened his subject's inner life and has used it to restore drama and depth to a major phase of American intellectual history. (John Higham, The Johns Hopkins University)"
"Elegantly written and thoroughly researched, Grodzins's biography promises to be the standard life of Parker for our generation and beyond. (Charles Capper, author of Margaret Fuller: An American Romantic Life)"
