With him as a companion, we encounter the ideas and meet the personalities of a pantheon of geniuses, from Lincoln to John Muir, from Carlyle to Montaigne, and, of course, Emerson\'s own close circle of Hawthorne, Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, and the Alcotts. With company like this, and annexed to the scope of Emerson\'s vision, we can read the entries as a daily inspiration and tonic or enjoy the book as the revelation of a visionary and incorruptible mind.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
