Born into the age of inspired amateurism that emerged from the ruins of pre-revolutionary political, religious, and cultural institutions, Emerson took up the challenge of thinking about the role of the United States alone and in the world. In this book Lawrence Buell conveys both the style and substance of Emerson's accomplishment--in his conception of America as the transplantation of Englishness into the new world, and in his prodigious work as writer, religious thinker, and philosopher. Here we see the paradoxical key to his success, the fierce insistence on independence that acted so magnetically upon all around him. At a time when Americans and non-Americans alike are struggling to understand what this country is, and what it is about, Emerson gives us an answer in the figure of this representative American, an American for all, and for all times.… (mere)

Loads of new words for me. Some of the writing seems a bit archaic which makes it harder to understand. simply said it is not easy going for me.

It goes into many of his work and this makes the works more understandable. I have trouble with some archaic writing and it makes it all the more important that i understand why Emerson said what he said and wrote what he wrote. He was writing for a intellectual audience as he spoke in a more simplified way. It would be interesting to read his talks before reading the more complex written works. Oh well.

Tough book to read, but well worth it. Good fodder for future reflection:
1. imitation is suicide - when Jesus calls the disciples, something there.
2. how to use language. ability to speak to both connoisseurs and groundlings.
3. omni-spirituality
4. constant flowing imagination
5. perfectionist skepticism
6. more of a thinker than a philosopher
7. scholar - teacher as well as student
8. ruined rather than fallen human
9. active thinking in relation to Howard Thurman ( )

Two hundred years old this year, Ralph Waldo Emerson is still very much alive even if he is no longer quite the household work he was on May 25, 1903, when his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts, declared a school holiday for an all day celebration of his life and legacy.
