Summary
"Ralph Waldo Emerson's journals - begun when he was 16, and ultimately comprising over three million words - were his life's work. The starting point for virtually everything in his essays, lectures, and poems, and a fascinating diary in the ordinary sense of the term, they reveal "the infinitude of the private man": an Emerson by turns whimsical, incisive, passionate, curious, and candid. With this volume and its companion, Selected Journals 1820-1842, The Library of America presents the most comprehensive nonspecialist edition of Emerson's great work ever published. Here, we encounter an Emerson at the height of his powers, soon to write his celebrated essays "Experience" and "Self-Reliance." The volume follows his anguished reactions to the nation's political turmoil - his anger at the Fugitive Slaw Law of 1850, his anti-slavery activism, and his day-to-day experience of the Civil War - and to personal losses, including his first-born son, Waldo, and his friends Henry David Thoreau and Margaret Fuller." --Book Jacket
