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.

Honestly haven't read the entire book. It's on my Nook and I go back to it all of the time. Love to read a tidbit and let it sit with me for a while.
