Emerson and Thoreau definitely belong among the greats of American literature, but they have a similar problem to Robert Frost: once you've read them once, you've done all the reading that you need. Anti-conformity quickly becomes a tedious subject, and the authors' elegant language soon becomes the only reason to keep reading.

The congregation, with Christian overtones, issued communion, something Emerson refused to do. "Really, it is beyond my comprehension," Emerson once said, when asked by a seminary professor whether he believed in God. (Quoted ...more
