Ralph Waldo Emerson: Selected Journals 1841–1877

Edited by Lawrence Rosenwald

“For several months I have been camping out in the mind of Ralph Waldo Emerson. It is a companionable, familiar, and yet endlessly stimulating place, and, since his mind his stronger than mine, I keep referring to his wisdom, even his doubts, and quite shamelessly identifying with him. All this started when I came across in a local bookstore the new, two-volume edition of his Selected Journals, published by The Library of America, and I decided to give it a whirl. Some 1,900 pages later, I am in thrall to, in love with, Mr. Emerson.”—Phillip Lopate, Harper’s
