This is a thinkers book. If you want to dive into the depths of the eclectic philosophies, thoughts, ideas and concepts of an early American thinker, you will enjoy this book. If you think evaluation, analysis and long explanations of multiple aspects of life and society are dry and tiring, then this book is not for you.
'Transcendentalist' ... which later became what Emerson's philosophy was called.
In 'Nature' Emerson equates Nature with man's quest for spiritual oneness. God.
I admit the language (poetry) of the early 1800s when it was written is difficult to grasp and needs to be read slowly. I've decided to re-read this short essay in another year (or so) with the belief that it's depth of meaning will reveal itself one layer at a time.
Thank you Amazon for providing these classics in digital form at no cost.
Emerson's book was so popular that it started a cultural movement in America in which people celebrated America's inspiring beauty through the painting of landscapes. Artist colonies were formed. Artists shared the belief that the landscape was God's expression on earth and that spending time in the outdoors drew the individual closer to God.
To be advised to whoever feels weak..
To recharge your eyes with Nature's beauty and, upon reading the last page feel the need of sharing quality time with those you love...
It even holds up in this imperfect Kindle edition. The text was likely scanned in as there are a few errors in spelling and spacing that commonly occur with OCR scanning software. Not a lot of them--the text was probably proofread--but a few glitches were missed. I can't complain beyond that, however. It's a free download.
