Ralph Waldo Emerson biography :

American writer Ralph Waldo Emerson was born on 25 May 1803 in Boston, Massachusetts. At the tender age of eight, Ralph Waldo Emerson’s father, Reverend William Emerson, died. He and his three surviving brothers (his parents had seven children) were then raised by their mother, Ruth Haskins.

Emerson studied at Harvard College at 14 and proceeded to attend the Harvard Divinity School. He was ordained a minister of the Second Church in Boston in 1829, just before he married his first wife, Ellen Louisa Tucker in 30 September of the same year. He resigned from this position in 1832 shortly after his wife passed away from tuberculosis on 08 February 1831.

Distraught over the death of his wife, Emerson sold his properties and went to Europe. He spent most of his time in Italy and had occasional trips to Switzerland and Paris. It was during his stay in Paris, at the Jardin Des Plantes, that he became interested in science and became a naturalist.

On October 1833, Emerson returned to the United States and became a public lecturer. In 1835, Emerson moved to Concorde, Massachusetts, where he met and married Lydia Jackson on 14 September 1835. This union produced four children: Waldo, Ellen Edith and Edward. His eldest son, Waldo, died of Scarlatina in 1842.
Emerson wrote several literary works, among these is his first book entitled Nature (1836) and his greatest essay, “The Poet” which was penned in 1844. Ralph Waldo Emerson succumbed to pneumonia in 27 April 1882 in Concord, Massachusetts.

The Spiritual Emerson: Essential Writings by Ralph Waldo Emerson


Book Description
The first collection of Emerson's spiritual writings, published for the 200th anniversary of the writer's birth

Matthew Arnold once described Ralph Waldo Emerson as "the friend and aider of all those who would live in the spirit." Arnold's comment captured the impact that Emerson had as a teacher of a new form of spirituality in the
nineteenth century. Emerson proposed a new religious vision that made the spiritual life freshly accessible to people.

In our current era, Emerson continues to speak with a compelling voice. Known best in the twenty-first century as a literary innovator and early architect of American intellectual culture, Emerson's writings still offer spiritual sustenance to the thoughtful reader. The Spiritual Emerson brings together the essays and lectures that best articulate Emerson's spiritual
vision, and promise the greatest relevance to today's reader. Compiled and introduced by David M. Robinson, one of the leading authorities on Emerson, The Spiritual Emerson will be both a portrait of Emerson as a spiritual
teacher and a sourcebook for all those who find his ideas and convictions useful in their own efforts to live in the spirit.
