Essays : first and second series by Ralph Waldo Emerson( Book )

1 edition published in 1844 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of Emerson's essays covers the contents of two volumes originally published in 1841 and 1844. Annotation. Our most eloquent champion of individualism, Emerson acknowledges at the same time the countervailing pressures of society in American life. Even as he extols what he called "the great and crescive self," he dramatizes and records its vicissitudes. Here is a collection of his classic essays, including the exhortation to "Self-Reliance" and the embattled realizations of "Circles" and "Experience." Here, too, are his wide-ranging discourses on history, art, politics, nature, friendship, love, and much more. For the first time, the authoritative editions of works by major American novelists, poets, scholars, and essayists collected in the hardcover volumes of The Library of America are being published singly in a series of handsome and durable paperback books. A distinguished author has contributed an introduction for each volume, which also includes a detailed chronology of the author's life and career, an essay on the choice of the text, and notes

Tamerlane by Edgar Allan Poe( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This epic poem gives an account of a Turkic ruler named Tamerlane, who conquered kingdoms to win power, while giving up that which his heart desired most. Despite the fact that his first published works were books of poetry, during his lifetime Edgar Allan Poe was recognized more for his literary criticism and prose than his poetry. However, Poe's poetic works have since become as well-known as his famous stories, and reflect similar themes of mystery and the macabre. "Tamerlane" is one of Poe's earliest works and gave its name to his first published book'Tamerlane and Other Poems.
