God in Concord: Ralph Waldo Emerson's Awakening to the Infinite
Richard Geldard, 1999 - 191 pages
As we approach the bicentennial of Emerson's birth, God in Concord returns us to the power and purity of Emerson's vision. Geldard shows in the private journals the path Emerson took to his revolutionary position as America's seer. He gives us an Emerson who hears the moaning of the human heart and responds, taking us beyond romantic notions or sentimental attachments.
