A Word or Two about my First Commitment to my Reading of Emerson

While I had resolved myself to reading Emerson deeply, I had not expected to find myself meditating and reflecting so deeply on individual passages of his writing. I assumed it would be more like me reading an essay and write a summary essay in response. However, what I find is that his writing is so powerful so frequently that I am just as frequently compelled to expression from it; which is why you find my written responses to my reading so focused on and specific to only single passages or even just a sentence or two.

This is a first for me. I hope you don’t mind.

  1. I don’t mind at all. I love that you’ve discovered one of the best known…and beloved…New England writers. If you need another, I’m sure I could Thoreau out some ideas.

    I think it’s wonderful that you’re discovering Emerson. I’ve read bits and pieces, but never thoroughly like you’re doing. I may have to join you!
