Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Of the most readily available anthologies of Emerson's work, Poirier's entry is by far the handsomest, most visually appealing of them all....But if one dives more deeply into the collection, one is similarly impressed with its substance....As a package this anthology is nothing less than impressive. It is undoubtedly the collection I will order the next time I teach a substantial amount of Emerson."--Nineteenth-Century Prose

"This volume immediately becomes a leading contender when anyone is choosing a fully representative yet affordable anthology of Emerson."--American Literature

"A solid, well-balanced collection that covers all the standard essays/poems, yet offers a refreshing selection of less-often seen materials."--Fred Erisman, Texas Christian University

"This convenient but copious volume can be strongly recommended for use as either class text or library reader."--Choice

"Very valuable indeed!"--E.N. Feltskog, University of Wisconsin, Madison
