Read from September 04 to 13, 2012 — I own a copy

I read this for my course in the English Renaissances, and I to be honest I am not sure if I would have chosen it for myself. That said, I am very delighted to have read this - to own a copy - because Nature and Selected Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson has been a great influence on some of the great, American writers and to see what they got inspired by feels like a privilege.

To say that I that I enjoyed all of Emerson's essay would be false, but I really enjoyed his Over-Soul, The American Scholar - which I read for uni - and The Poet. To see that he was a speaker is very clear, however, his way with words is really inspiring and fascinating, and I couldn't help myself from writing down some of the quotes.
