Ralph Waldo Emerson by Prof. Harold Bloom


Ralph Waldo Emerson by Prof. Harold Bloom

Ralph Waldo Emerson was a key figure of the American Renaissance of the mid-19th century. His essay Nature is considered one of the most influential works in American history, and he inspired the likes of Whitman, Thoreau, and Dickinson. This volume from the new Bloom's Classic Critical Views series features compelling essays from the 19th and early 20th centuries that offer students unique historical insights into a visionary whose works have remained relevant for generations.


Harold Bloom adds some fantastic critical literary guides, providing interpretations and issues that should reach a wide audience from adults to young adults at the high school and college levels.
