Review of H.G. Callaway (ed) R.W. Emerson, Society and Solitude: Twelve Chapters [Book Review]

The Pluralist 4 (No.1):118-123 (2009)
Howard Callaway's new edition of Ralph Waldo Emerson's Society and Solitude is an invaluable contribution to both the primary and secondary literature on Emerson. Its contribution to the primary sources is its use of the original 1870 edition of Emerson's text, though with modernized spellings to facilitate the reader's understanding. Its contribution to the secondary literature consists in the scholarly apparatus of page-by-page annotations, an introduction, a chronology, a bibliography, and an index. Callaway's Society and Solitude is a worthy companion to his earlier edition of Emerson's The Conduct of Life
