The Spiritual Emerson

Essential Writings by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson   Editor: David M. Robinson

The first and most comprehensive collection of Emerson’s spiritual writings

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 1882) 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.
