Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) was one of the most influential literary figures and the leading voice of intellectual culture in 19th century America. An essayist, philosopher, poet, and founder of the Transcendentalist Movement, his many now-iconic writings include Nature, The American Scholar, Self Reliance, The Over-soul, Society and Solitude, and Concord Hymn. Mentor to great writers such as Walt Whitman and Henry Thoreau, Emerson continues to exert a powerful influence on Western thought and literature.
