"Simply the best selection ever made from the spiritual writings of America's most influential sage." -John Buehrens, author of Understanding the Bible 'A guided anthology that takes the reader through Emerson's own spiritual evolution.' -Robert D. Richardson, Jr., author of Emerson: The Mind on Fire Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882) is known best in the twenty-first century as a literary innovator and early architect of American intellectual culture, but his writings still offer spiritual sustenance to the thoughtful reader. The Spiritual Emerson, originally published on the two hundredth anniversary of the writer's birth, brings together the writings that articulate Emerson's spiritual vision and promise the greatest relevance to today's reader. 'It is a great service of this book that it traces Emerson's] spiritual development . . . It] is also valuable in establishing the full texture and subtlety of Emerson's much-misunderstood notion of self-reliance and nonconformity.' -Richard Higgins, Boston Globe 'This collection brings together for the first time Emerson's most important writings on spiritual themes, along with a discerning and eminently readable introduction by one of the foremost authorities on Emerson's religious thought.' -Lawrence Buell, Harvard University, author of Literary Transcendentalism and Emerson David M. Robinson is the author of numerous books, including Emerson and the Conduct of Life and Apostle of Culture: Emerson as Preacher and Lecturer. He is Oregon Professor of English and Distinguished Professor of American Literature at Oregon State University in Corvallis.
