About this book

This book provides an original account of Emerson's creative debts to the British and European Romantics, including Coleridge and Carlyle, firmly locating them in his New England context. Moreover this book analyses and explains the way that his thought shapes his unique prose style in which idea and word become united in an epistemology of form.

About the authors

DAVID GREENHAM is the associate Head of the Department of Arts at the University of the West of England, UK. He has written widely on American literature, from Faulkner to Roth, but currently focuses on Emerson and the American Renaissance in a transatlantic context. His most recent book was The Resurrection of the Body: The Work of Norman O. Brown (Lexington, 2006).

Reviews

'Greenham's account will be of great help to general readers and of provocative stimulation to scholars of nineteenth-century readers. For general readers, he offers a splendid overview of Emerson scholarship of the past fifty years, for scholars, he offers a skilful use of Emerson's letters and journals to present new proof for earlier, forgotten positions. It is an exciting and useful text.' - David van Leer, Professor of English, University of California Davis, USA
