    One thought on “Essays, First Series”

    1. Unfortunately, I barely pushed myself through this. I picked it up because it was in the "further reading" list in the back of "The Art of Stoic Joy," and of course Emerson is famous (and it's out of copyright==free). However, I really never clicked with it. I think there are two main reasons. First, I get frustrated with Emerson's mysticism--using metaphorical language and arguing by assertion, without any kind of clear logical structure for the most part. I feel like 90% of the assertions he m [...]

    2. Emerson might have written a powerful critique of conservative morality and organized religion if he’d overcome his belief in soul and God.

    3. "All men plume themselves on the improvement of society, and no man improves." I am too tiny a creature to review this book. This book has restored me. Brilliant!

    4. There are aspects of Emerson that don't do it for me. He believes in Nature, with a big capital N. He's sure he's found it, he's sure it's good, and he's sure that Nature is himself. Sometimes his belief in Nature makes him a thoroughgoing democrat. Everyone, after all, is Natural by definition. But at other times he is as élitist as any other nineteenth-century intellectual. Perhaps we could all be Natural if we tried, but most people are slaves of convention, and there is little hope they'll [...]

    5. Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string. Acceptthe place the divine providence has found for you, the societyof your contemporaries, the connection of events. Great menhave always done so, and confided themselves childlike to thegenius of their age, betraying their perception that theabsolutely trustworthy was seated at their heart, workingthrough their hands, predominating in all their being. Andwe are now men, and must accept in the highest mind the sametranscendent destiny; an [...]

    6. I've been reading this book for a year now - I've just finished it. However, every year, one changes. But there's always that year of great transformation in everyone's life.For me it was this year. And these essays were the "firing level"!I neither can review nor describe this book, but I can say that throughout my reading, I never felt I'm holding a book! It's just me and Emerson conversing out there! and it's just me sitting there speechless, with a beating heart. Yes, that's what beauty doe [...]

    7. Although I don't buy into Emerson's transcendental philosophy I will say he has some of the most salient quotes about being oneself. There are snatches of his "Self Reliance" essay that I will probably put to memory. And, wow, the way Emerson could turn a phrase, whewwwww, this man could write! But, I soon lost steam going through his writings (hence, the first series and not the second). They all began to sound much the same and had a rambling quality to them. If you've read one of his essays I [...]

    8. The actual book I am reading was published in 1934 and not coming up on GoodReads' search engineever, I am slogging through this stuffe first essay is titled "History" and is pretty intellectual and abstract. "Self-Reliance" is a little less obtuse, but it still is a snail's pace to creep through the text and absorb in context what reads al lot like free-association ramblingsggets of gold hidden in and about, but still rough going to get to the kernals of goodnessh.

    9. Drivel. If you are into incoherent and contradictory stream of conciousness navel gazing you might be in luck. If you are looking for a quote mine for postcards at your patchouli and magic crystal store, by all means check this out. If you are looking for a well developed and articulated philosophical text, look elsewhere.

    10. This set contains one of Emerson's most famous essays, "Self-Reliance," which is honestly all I have read thus far. It is a not so gentle reminder that we have everything that we need within, and f*c# everything else. Brilliant highly recommended for anyone that needs to remember.

    11. “Self-Reliance”It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

    12. After the first two, which were lyrical, elegant and beautiful, I found the idealism too hard to swallow for nonfiction.

    13. A superb collection of essays on many topics. Includes "Self-Reliance", and other well-known essays by the Transcendentalist and thinker. Great reading.

    14. Emerson's prose has a really poetry feel to it making it a great book to listen to. I "read" the last essay (Art) though for the same reason.

    15. Beautiful exquisite plain truths on how to live. A manual for living to stand beside Marcus Aurelius's Meditations.
