Book description
Haiku summary

"As a philosopher, essayist, poet, and lecturer, Emerson's mind ranged across the universe even as he traveled the length and breadth of the United States and Europe. With him as a companion, we encounter the ideas and meet the personalities of a pantheon of geniuses, from Lincoln to John Muir, from Carlyle to Montaigne, and, of course, Emerson's own close circle of Hawthorne, Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, and the Alcotts. With company like this, and annexed to the scope of Emerson's vision, we can read the entries as a daily inspiration and tonic or enjoy the book as the revelation of a visionary and incorruptible mind."--BOOK JACKET. ""A chief event of life is that day in which we have encountered a mind that startled us." A Year with Emerson is a feast of 365 such days, designed to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of the "Sage of Concord." Known all over the world for his cogent, epigrammatic writing and as the "George Washington of American Literature," his work is even more delightful and enriching in bigger doses, and the daily almanac entries in A Year with Emerson take us to the heart of his ideas and philosophy. Some were written on the very day in which they appear in the book, some are speculations and musings of the season and the natural world on the date of entry, all are unfailingly wise and relevant to our modern times.".… (more)
