No American mind stands more influentially for creativity than Emerson’s. And these lifelong records, his journals particularly, provide unique glimpses into his growth. In these years, out of college, uncomfortably teaching school, young Waldo is becoming Emerson… His journalizing was literary practice, but above all, it was a heritage from the unsparing Puritan self-examination of the spirit for signs of grace or reprobation. And it is from that heritage…that the two most striking documents in this volume derive.The Chicago Tribune

In this volume we find Emerson’s evolving ideas on the moral sense, moral beauty, taste, greatness and fame, friendship and the unity of God and the universe… There need never be another edition.The Washington Post & Times Herald
