Editorial Reviews

As many of Ralph Waldo Emerson's best essays began as lectures, it is a privilege to have access to the veteran narrator Nelson Runger's recording of Emerson's Love and Friendship. With Runger's homey and familiar voice, Emerson's ideas and philosophy on individuality, love, and freedom are easily digestible. With just a short listen of this invaluable audiobook, listeners will be more than aware of just why it is Emerson, one of the leaders of the Transcendentalist movement, has influenced American thought for so long.

Publisher's Summary

"A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere," wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson in Love and Friendship, a collection of essays on relationships. "Before him, I may think aloud. I do then with my friends as I do with my books. I would have them where I can find them, but I seldom use them."
