In 1939 Columbia University Press published the acclaimed first volume of "The Letters of Ralph Waldo Emerson, " which presented a deeply personal portrait of the real Emerson, previously unknown to the American public. Through these letters readers gained a new insight into the mind of this seminal figure in American literary and intellectual history. Now, for the first time, readers can find Emerson's best letters distilled in one volume. Distinguished Emerson scholar Joel Myerson has selected 350 letters written between 1813 and 1880 that best represents the scope of Emerson's correspondence.

By his skillful editing, Myerson has fabricated out of Emerson's own words a striking portrait of one of the most compelling and elusive figures of the nineteenth century. Journal of American History Myerson's selection of Emerson's letters is the ideal book for either those who already know the famous writer's work or those who would like to learn more about the great Transcendentalist... An outstanding collection. Dallas Morning News
