Emerson is the kind of thinker and writer whose thoughts are so profound and timeless that you can't resist marking up the volumes of his books, or dog-earing the pages, or at the very least, copying passage after passage of his wisdom and practical take on life into your journal or day book. I believe that the Essays and Journals of Ralph Waldo Emerson are essential reading for everyone, everywhere, in every generation, now, yesterday, and for generations to come.
He is one of our national treasures and certainly among the top greatest thinkers and writers that this country has ever produced. One becomes a better person by having read him. And then returned to read him again. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Emerson writes well, for the most part, and sometimes he even writes the truth. His prose can turn purple, he often repeats himself and at times he writes utter nonsense. His view of God is of an impersonal, indifferent god.

This was the fashion amongst the western elites in the 19th century. This is not God as understood by the Jews, Christians and Muslims. For all that, Emerson is worth reading; if for nothing else, to understand a very important strand of philosophy in American thought. The ripples from the Transcendental movement are felt down to our own day. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.
This volume provided a wide selection of very thought-provoking and peaceful poems, as well as a excerpt from one of Emerson's famous essays. Before, I had heard little about his poems, as he was known foremost as an essayist and a leader of Transcendentalist philosophy.

Some were a bit dry or over my head, but if you are a fan of nature, have previously enjoyed Emerson's well-known quotes and essays, or are fascinated by nineteenth-century New England history in general, give Emerson a try! I wish I had more intelligence to be able to comprehend all the sage writings of Emerson. Sometimes I had problems understanding him fully.
He believed that humanity participates in Nature and that all objects are part of nature's whole but each is particular in itself. Man can be greater than he is. He made many good points. Have to take time to absorb and ponder when reading his essays. One person found this helpful. I have been reading from the Harvard Classics list and my brains were so scrambled by the really old Greeks and the classic English writers and those who prefer to write like them.
I wept with joy when I read Emerson. He is supposed to have been the first author to write as an American writes. So I don't know how much of the joy I felt in reading his works had to do with what I had been reading before but Emerson writes lyrically and compared to others from his day, sparsely. Here is a good sampling of Ralph Waldo Emerson writings. After reading a few, you will wonder why he is not more popular today. At least a few of these essays should be required reading in high school and beyond. Excellent writing and great insights from a relatively well known but seldom visited American philosopher.
