Emerson, Alfred Kazin observes in his Introduction, was a great writer who turned the essay into a form all his own. His celebrated essays--the twelve published in Essays: First Series (1841) and eight in Essays: Second Series (1844)--are here presented for the first time in an authoritative one-volume edition, which incorporates all the changes and corrections Emerson made after their initial publication.
