Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson – Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote several books of essays, commonly associated with transcendentalism and romanticism. “Essays” most commonly refers to his first two series of essays:
Essays: First Series
Essays: Second Series
Some of the most notable essays of these two collections are Self-Reliance, Compensation, The Over-Soul, Circles, The Poet, Experience, and Politics.
Emerson later wrote several more books of essays including Representative Men, English Traits, The Conduct of Life and Society and Solitude. Emerson’s first published essay, Nature, was published in 1836, before the first and second series.
Ralph Waldo Emerson was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1803. A self-proclaimed “Naturalist,” Emerson founded a distinctly American philosophy emphasizing optimism, individuality, and mysticism. In the 1840’s, his essays, speeches, and poetry defined him as a central character in the Trancendental movement, and ultimately shaped him into one of the most influential literary figures of the nineteenth century. He died of pneumonia in 1882 in Concord, Massachusetts.
