Overview

This volume in the New Riverside Editions series is the first collection to combine the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Margaret Fuller, thereby demonstrating the importance of both men's and women's contributions to American Transcendentalism. Edited and with an illuminating introduction by John Carlos Rowe (University of California-Irvine), this volume contains the complete text of Margaret Fuller's Woman in the Nineteenth Century, a selection of her dispatches from Europe, a generous collection of Emerson's essays (including Nature, "Self-Reliance," "The Poet," and many others), and a selection of Emerson's poems. The essays and poems contained in this volume focus on debates and conflicts among the transcendentalists about such questions as abolition, women's rights, westward expansion, and industrialization. The selections emphasize the political and cultural commitments of Emerson and Fuller in their own time.
