Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Herman Melville said that Ralph Waldo Emerson possessed a "self-conceit so intensely intellectual that at first one hesitates to call it by its right name," though he later admitted Emerson was "a great man." Both were probably true. The Sage of Concord gave more than 1500 speeches in his lifetime, and Self-Reliance is probably his most important work.

Bought it to read after learning more about Ralph W. Emerson's life. Obviously, there are some surprising parts to a modern eye--- especially the parts that seem a tad classist, but he wrote this in ye olden times so take it with a grain of salt. The overall themes were interesting, especially the section on behavior. It's fun to read this as it is a snapshot of the philosophies of a Boston-based scholar in Civil War times, no more and no less.

This is a good book If you are looking for a wise person's perspective on US culture, and human nature in general. The reflections of years ago still apply in most cases, I think. There are parts where the metaphors and descriptions get a little overdone, in my opinion, so I just skimmed them.

Oh man does Emerson nail it - you will be awe struck and inspired, or else you ain't alive.
