This collection of essays, published in 1856, grew out of Emerson's travels in England, undertaken shortly after he resigned his ministry following a loss of faith. An insightful survey of English history and manners, English Traits also features accounts of Emerson's meetings with such luminaries as Wordsworth, Coleridge, and Carlyle.
