Late Harvest: Essays and Addresses in American Literature and Culture
Spiller recalls his pilgrimage as a scholar in this moving autobiographical tour through formative years in the history of the American studies movement. He testifies to attempting to become Emerson's "American Scholar", and argues that American studies, as far as he is concerned, appear as a logical extension of his transcendentalist quest after a national literature and culture.
