Reprinted here are the most important adulatory and critical firsthand accounts by many major and minor literary figures in Britain and the United States as well as by Ralph Waldo Emerson's children. From Whitman's record of his visit to Emerson in Concord to Bronson Alcott's reports on his personality, from Jane and Thomas Carlyle's comments on their meetings with him during his visits to Britain to Margaret Fuller's and John Muir's reminiscences, these recollections provide wide-ranging descriptions of his life and time. Each entry is prefaced by an essay that provides contextual and historical information and the volume includes a useful chronology of Emerson's life.
