Harvard University Press (2003)

Buell has written an excellent intellectual biography of Emerson--which is especially good on Emerson's relationship to Thoreau. This is a book in the style of American literary studies and certainly of use to students of Emerson's thought in philosophy. "On the occasion of Emerson’s 200th birthday, Lawrence Buell revisits the life of the nation’s first public intellectual and discovers how he became a "representative man."
