In this book, the leading scholar of New England literary culture looks at the long shadow Emerson has cast, and at his role and significance as a truly American institution. Buell conveys both the style and substance of Emerson's accomplishment--in his conception of America as the transplantation of Englishness into the new world, and in his prodigious work as writer, religious thinker, and philosopher.
