9780791475270: New Morning: Emerson in the Twenty-First Century

New Morning brings together philosophers, poets, and literary critics to celebrate and engage the ideas of the great American writer and philosopher, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Emerson's legacy influences many areas; he was a champion of democracy and civil rights, a naturalist, an idealist, an artist, a writer, and a philosopher. Rather than focusing on Emerson in his historical context, this volume brings to light the ways in which Emerson's voice and work still speak powerfully to the concerns of the present moment. In short essays and poems, some of America's most influential scholars and poets-including John J. McDermott, Mary Oliver, Mark Strand, Robert C. Pollock, Gary Snyder, and Lawrence Buell-underscore the relevance of Emerson's thought to contemporary issues as varied as the environment, race, politics, spirituality, aesthetics, and education.

Review :

Like a series of gateways, these essays and poems seek the conditions of possibility for a new Emerson, one who provokes and witnesses a world as radically uncertain, displaced, and mercurial as our own, and as riddled with inescapable yet insoluble questions about teaching and ignorance, doubt and faith, reason, beauty, and the fate of nature. If each age must write its own Emerson, then this collection offers all of us the place to start. Laura Dassow Walls, author of Emerson s Life in Science: The Culture of Truth"
