Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) was an American essayist and poet. Along with such figures as Henry Thoreau and Margaret Fuller, he was an originator and, through the magazine The Dial, popularizer of the Transcendentalist movement. In essays like "Self-Reliance," he championed a distinctly American brand of individualism.
