Gougeon (American literature, U. of Seranton) draws on a broad array of primary documents to offer a detailed account of Emerson's position vis-avis slavery. The image that emerges is of an Emerson who became the social conscience of his age--a concerned and committed social activist dedicated to the abolition of slavery in his lifetime. Annotation c.
