Product Description

Ralph Waldo Emerson's brilliance as a prose writer has too long overshadowed his remarkable gifts as a poet. This collection gathers both published and unpublished work--poems left in manuscript at his death and hitherto available only in drastically edited or specialized scholarly versions--to offer all readers for the first time the full range of Emerson's poetry. Here are the three book-length collections and magazine publications, along with the best of the astonishing poems from his manuscripts, journals, and notebooks, freer and more unconventional in both form and subject matter. Also included are translations of Persian poems, whose sensuality and mysticism were profound influence, and of Dante's La Vita Nuova. Displacing all previous editions in its comprehensiveness and textual authority, this volume reveals the ecstatic and meditative sides of one of the greatest of all American writers.
