Bosco and Myerson, the finest textual scholars of Emerson’s work, have collected Emerson’s major sermons, lectures, and essays into one elegant, beautifully edited volume… Where necessary, the editors have improved on the editing of such seminal addresses as ‘The American Scholar,’ creating the most authoritative texts of individual prose works now available. This volume has much to offer both seasoned scholars and those coming to the ‘Sage of Concord’ for the first time.—T. H. Richardson, Choice

Jacket: How To Be Gay, by David M. Halperin, from Harvard University Press

Celebrating Pride Month, Part II

To celebrate Pride Month, we are highlighting excerpts from books that explore the lives and experiences of the LGBT+ community. This second excerpt comes from How To Be Gay, a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award, in which David M. Halperin, a pioneer of LGBTQ studies, dares to suggest that gayness is a way of being that gay men must learn from one another to become who they are.
