9780140260298: Emerson among the Eccentrics: A Group Portrait

The story of the American Renaissance told through Emerson and his eccentric circle of friends, notably Hawthorn, Thoreau, Fuller and Alcott. The book begins with Emerson's decision to leave the ministry and ends with his increasing loss of mental powers. The narrative interweaves the events of Emerson's life with those of his extended family and friends, showing the ways in which his thought and life were affected by these relationships and how he in turn affected others. Through his connections with these people, it shows the unfolding of his relgious, literary, and political ideas, his changing view of nature, man, and God, to show how friends reflected and diverged or misrepresented his teachings.
