An exhaustively researched, richly detailed biography of Ralph Waldo Emerson and the writers of the American Renaissance--including Hawthorne and Thoreau--traces their relationships, their daily lives, and the era in which they lived. 

An abundance of little-known details and disclosures graces Carlos Baker's last work of literary criticism, bringing to life not only Ralph Waldo Emerson the man, but also a whole cultural milieu known for its brilliance, artistic flowering, and progressive thinking. The portrait of Emerson emerges as if through a mosaic. We see him primarily through the eyes of others--their letters and journal entries--reminding readers that Emerson did not exist in a vacuum.
