    I've been a fan of Emerson and the Transcendalists since high school. I picked this up at a Barnes and Noble on Memorial Day and decided it would be my on and off summer read. I'm glad I did. Emerson has a timeless wisdom on topics that are still relevant today. My favorite essays are Self-Reliance and Fate. My favorite of his poems is Sea-Shore. This isn't a book you just read through from page one to the end.

It isn't the complete works, but it is the best of his works.

    This book was my "Bible" for a couple of months. I wrote my thesis on Emerson's American Scholar and its influence on education throughout history. It was rough but one cannot deny that Emerson was an amazing thinker and writer. I think this book contains a great selection that should be read by everyone.

    Haven't read all of it, but very interesting philosophical proposition to the young nation of America. An attempt to influence a developing culture. Interesting and eloquent, even though I have some serious metaphysical disagreements and he ignores much of human history in his perspective on man's nature.

    This was a class book, and even so, I highly enjoyed reading Emerson's prose. I had the chance to read "Self-Reliance" in high school, but after reading more of his essays, that was definitely not the best one, or at least in my opinion. "The Poet" and "The Over Soul" ranked higher. This was a class book, and even so, I highly enjoyed reading Emerson's prose.

    Excellent anthology. He was very difficult at first but eventually you have this break-through moment that allows you the ultimate insight and understanding. I love his essays. His poems are eh..but I am not a fan of poetry

    When I realize I've spent hours reading Emerson for "homework" I have to put the book down and high-five myself for quitting the 8-to-5 and going back to perpetual pupilhood.
