Overview

The essays continue a dialogue between the New England of Emerson and the New York milieu of the early 1930s. The New York dialogue flourished among in­tellectuals simultaneously concerned with the political consequences of liber­alism and Marxism and with the imag­inative implications of modernism. In both periods the vexing relationship be­tween politics and literary expression was a common concern.

Contributors, some of whom write about Emerson, some about Quentin Anderson, are Jacques Barzun, Stephen Do­nadio, Denis Donoghue, Aaron Fogel, Carl Hovde, Steven Marcus, Stephen Railton, Ormond Seavey, Peter Shaw, Timothy Trask, Diana Trilling, and Paul Zweig.
