    Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of the most important figures in the history of American thought, religion, and literature. The vitality of his writings and the unsettling power of his example continue to influence us more than a hundred years after his death. Now Robert D. Richardson Jr. brings to life an Emerson very different from the old stereotype of the passionless Sage of Concord.

    John says: "Entertaining, erudite, engaging"

    Would you try another book from Robert D. Richardson and/or Michael McConnohie?

    Can't tell if it was the subject that so bored me or the reader. Both, probably.


    Has Emerson turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I enjoy biography and histgory


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael McConnohie’s performances?

    I don't think so.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Emerson?

    Most of it.
