Emerson

The Mind on Fire : A Biography

eBook - 1996 | Pbk. ed., 1996
Rate this:
Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of the most important figures in the history of American thought, religion and literature. The vitality of his writings and the unsettling power of his example continue to influence us more than 100 years after his death. This book brings to life an Emerson very different from the old stereotype of the passionless Sage of Concord. Drawing on a vast amount of material, including correspondence among the Emerson brothers, it gives us an intellectual biography that is also a portrait of the whole man.
