His writing is not always easy to understand without close reading, since he often uses common terms in idiosyncratic ways, but once one decodes his terminology, the way become easier; nonetheless, sometimes it seems more profitable to read him for general impressions than in meticulous detail. And if “Nature” at times seemed turgid, “The American Scholar” glows and delights, explor

Emerson is the quintessential American and quite frankly probably the quintessential human being, by my lights. At his peak, which he hits here often (see especially: The Poet, The American Scholar, The Divinity School Address, and the final chapter of The Conduct of Life), his every sentence falls like a fiery brand imprinting itself forever on my mind. Stylistically, he is an absolutely incredible writer, and his content burns. Emerson speaks to you and only you—reading these essays is about as close as an atheist like myself can get to understanding what it is like, for religious people, to have a personal experience with God (do not misunderstand this as me simply praising Emerson as a divinity).

    So why only a 4? Because, as good as this is, his journals (released, in abridged form, in two wonderful volumes by the Library of America) tower above his essays. In his essays, he i

He excuses his inconsistency with a pithy phrase that has become his trademark, but his careless thinking isn't so much a hobgoblin as a morass. He has a good heart, so it's hard to give the man a pitiful two-star review. Unfortunately, I think he's peddling snake oil. He provides the perfect ar

But it is open to graver criticism than the palsy of its members: it is a system of despair. The disease with which the human mind now labors, is want of faith. Men do not believe in a power of education. We do not think we can speak to divine sentiments in man, and we do not try. We renounce all high aims. We believe that the defects

    Perhaps I am perverse, but I can't figure out where to stand in relation to Emerson. I suppose I want to be a believer, to follow him, to take his essays as personally instructive and applicable to my life. And yet at the same time, for the most part, I can't

Emerson fought for individuals to trust the divine within and stop relying on past individuals to tell us what to do. “Books are the best of things, well used; abused, among the worst...They are for nothing but to inspire.” Fascinating read. I think I’m a Transcendentalist.

I’m not a nature lover, however. I don’t think more truths are to be had walking through a forest than walking down a city street. I don’t think nature is an unambiguous good, extolling lessons of virtue and justice. Nature, to me, is more equivocal, more problematic. Let’s be perfectly clear: It’s trying to kill you. All the time. Everywhere. It is a remorseless battleground for survival.

    It’s through these jaded eyes I’m reviewing the key essays as I read them:

While I have always heard of him, he was brought to my attention after reading Thoreau's Walden for the first time in 2017. It was then, that I was seriously introduced to Ralph Waldo Emerson.
