Ralph Waldo Emerson May 25 April 27 ) was an American essayist, poet, and leader of the Transcendentalist movement in the early 19th century Emerson gradually moved away from the religious and social beliefs of his contemporaries, formulating and expressing the philosophy of Transcendentalism in his 1836 essay, Nature . As a result of this ground breaking work he gave a speech entitled The American Scholar in 1837, which is considered to be America's "Intellectual Declaration of Independence." He once said "Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you." Considered one of the great orators of the time, Emerson's enthusiasm and respect for his audience enraptured crowds. His support for abolitionism late in life created controversy, and he was subject to abuse from crowds while speaking on the topic. When asked to sum up his work, he said his central doctrine was "the infinitude of the private man."

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) A major American poet, who worked first as an Unitarian priest. In his hometown, Concord, Emerson founded a literary circle called New England Transcendentalism, a hodgepodge of fashionable thoughts, in which participated among others Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry Thoreau . During his travels in England he met Wordsworth Coleridge , and Thomas Carlyle , with whom he maintained a lifelong correspondence from the 1830s and whose opinions of the importance of great historical figures influenced his own writings. Later Emerson became involved in the antislavery movement and worked for women's rights. CHARACTER
The sun set, but set not his hope:
Stars rose; his faith was earlier up:
Fixed on the emormous galaxy,
Deeper and older seemed his eye;
And matched his sufferance sublime
The taciturnity of time. He spoke, and words more soft than rain Brought the Age of Gold again: His action won such reverance sweet As hid all measure of the feat.

and Margaret Fuller William Ellery Channing , George Buckminster, Henry Ware, Sr. and Edward Everett. His father died when Waldo was eight, leaving the family without financial support. His mother Ruth sold her husband's library (which became the Boston Athenaeum), took in boarders and worked as a maid. They often had not enough to eat. Waldo and his brother Charles had only one overcoat between them. Taunting schoolfellows asked, "Whose turn is it to wear the great-coat today?" Aunt Mary Moody Emerson, his father's unmarried sister, was the dominant influence of Emerson's childhood and youth. Without formal education, she was possessed of a richly fertile mind. She read widely and knew well the thinkers of the day. A moderate "Channing Unitarian," steeped in the piety of New England and the history of its churches and theology, she taught Waldo many of the aphorisms he in turn taught his own children: "Lift your aims." "Always do what you are afraid to do." "Despise trifles." "Turn up your nose at glory, honor and money." And "Oh, blessed, blessed poverty." She first introduced Emerson to Hindu scriptures and Neoplatonism. She anticipated, especially in her openess to natural religion, the Transcendentalist sensibility. Emerson's distinctive views first began to emerge in his letters to "Tnamurya," an anagram of "Aunt Mary," during the 1820s.

    Emerson, Ralph Waldo (1803-1882), American essayist and poet, a leader of the philosophical movement of transcendentalism. Influenced by such schools of thought as English romanticism, Neoplatonism, and Hindu philosophy. Emerson is noted for his skill in presenting his ideas eloquently and in poetic language. Emerson was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Seven of his ancestors were ministers, and his father, William Emerson, was minister of the First Church (Unitarian) of Boston. Emerson graduated from Harvard University at the age of 18 and for the next three years taught school in Boston. In 1829 he became minister of the Second Church (Unitarian) of Boston. That same year he married Ellen Tucker, who died 17 months later. In 1832 Emerson resigned from his pastoral appointment because of personal doubts about administering the sacrament of the Lord's Supper. On Christmas Day, 1832, he left the United States for a tour of Europe. He stayed for some time in England, where he made the acquaintance of such British literary notables as Walter Savage Landor, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas Carlyle, and William Wordsworth . His meeting with Carlyle marked the beginning of a lifelong friendship.

      Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) , American Transcendentalist poet, philosopher, lecturer, and essayist wrote Nature To go into solitude, a man needs to retire as much from his chamber as from society. I am not solitary whilst I read and write, though nobody is with me. But if a man would be alone, let him look at the stars. The rays that come from those heavenly worlds, will separate between him and what he touches. One might think the atmosphere was made transparent with this design, to give man, in the heavenly bodies, the perpetual presence of the sublime. Seen in the streets of cities, how great they are! If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown! But every night come out these envoys of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile.Ch. 1 Initially published anonymously, Emerson's first collection of essays
