Abstract:

Annotation.

During two influential visits to England(in 1833 and in 1847) where he met with literary icons such as Coleridge, Carlyle, and Wordsworth, Ralph Waldo Emerson recognized the source of everything American -- from the laws of society to the plot of a novel.Though he admired England's triumphs, he also presciently sensed the demise of a country weighed down by the "drag of inertia." And though mesmerized by her literature, he would later encourage American writers to forge a style all their own. Written during a decade of great change for America, England, and for Emerson himself,English Traitsilluminates Emerson's visionary thought as much as it vividly portrays 19th century England.
