1865 Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson Self Reliance Circles The Poet American Lit

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.

This 1865 printing of “Essays” features both the first and second series that were published separately in 1840 and 1841, respectively. This collection includes famous essays such as:


•The Poet


•The Over-soul
