Summary One of the most significant men of letters in American history, Ralph Waldo Emerson was not only acquainted with the most prominent authors, reformers, and politicians of his day, but also had daily contact with such literary figures as Thoreau, Hawthorne, Margaret Fuller, and Bronson Alcott. Based on journals, correspondence, reminiscences, newspaper articles, and many other sources of information, this detailed chronology of the life of Emerson offers a daily accounting of what he read and wrote, where he traveled, who he saw, and his thoughts and opinions concerning the events and personalities of his day. All of his speeches are accounted for and, indeed, this volume provides the most complete and accurate record of his public appearances available. An Emerson Chronology is an important resource for students of nineteenth-century American literature, history, religion, and philosophy.
