The Ralph Waldo Emerson Journals (1845-1848) : Volume 7 (e-Book)
Volume 7 | 1845-1848
Volume 7 (1845-1848) shifts attention away somewhat from the isolated scholar and shows us a man growing more and more conscious of external issues, particularly slavery. As the crisis of the 1850's and Civil War approaches, Emerson is drawn in to the conflict and begins to articulate the positions he will take in the next decade.
This volume also continues his views on Transcendentalism and criticism of institutions.
