Overview

Collection of over 150 poems by the American essayist, poet, and leader of the Transcendentalist movement in the early nineteenth century. He is often identified as the first writer to develop a uniquely American literary style and vision, rather than following in the footsteps of his contemporaries who were strongly influenced by their British cultural heritage. He was considered one of the great orators of the time. His outspoken, uncompromising support for abolitionism later in life caused protest and jeers from crowds when he spoke on the subject. He formulated and first expressed the philosophy of Transcendentalism in his essay Nature (1836) which was the first significant work to establish this new way of looking at the Americas and its raw, natural environment.

    Dated in style and form and best appreciated in his short poems

    Length was best then and for the modern reader too wordy with that eras similies now seem stale. Best read in small samples could have had an index of first lines. Mom

    He looked at the fire, expressing himself with ease. He was clever. It was almost like a tease.
