Originally published between 1909 and 1917 under the name "Harvard Classics," this stupendous 51-volume set-a collection of the greatest writings from literature, philosophy, history, and mythology-was assembled by American academic CHARLES WILLIAM ELIOT (1834-1926), Harvard University's longest-serving president. Also known as "Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf," it represented Eliot's belief that a basic liberal education could be gleaned by reading from an anthology of works that could fit on five feet of bookshelf. Volume V features two collections from American poet and philosopher RALPH WALDO EMERSON (1803-1882): Essays-on such topics as "The American Scholar," "Self-Reliance," "Friendship," "Heroism," and more-and English Traits, in which he examines the British character as gathered from his travels in England.

Metaphors are ubiquitous and yet-or, for that very reason-go largely unseen. We are all variously susceptible to a blindness or blurry vision of metaphors; yet even when they are seen clearly, we are left to situate the ambiguities, conflations and contradictions they regularly present-logically, aesthetically and morally. David LaRocca's book serves as a set of 'reminders' of certain features of the natural history of our language-especially the tropes that permeate and define it. As part of his investigation, LaRocca turns to Ralph Waldo Emerson's only book on a single topic, English Traits (1856), which teems with genealogical and generative metaphors-blood, birth, plants, parents, family, names and race. In the first book-length study of English Traits in over half a century, LaRocca considers the presence of metaphors in Emerson's fertile text-a unique work in his expansive corpus, and one that is regularly overlooked. As metaphors are encountered in Emerson's book, and drawn from a long history of usage in work by others, a reader may realize (or remember) what is inherent and encoded in our language, but rarely seen: how metaphors circulate in speech and through texts to become the lifeblood of thought.

One hundred years after Ralph Waldo Emer­son’s death in Concord is an appropriate time to assess his life and writings. The eleven essays here presented, along with new documentary and manuscript material soon to be made available, will provide a fresh im­petus for subsequent studies of Emerson as man and writer. The first four essays trace Emerson’s de­velopment through the publication of his first series of Essays in 1841: Evelyn Barish de­scribes Emerson’s early illness and how his decision to deal with sickness influenced his philosophy; Wesley T. Mott shows the importance of the sermon “Christ Cruci­fied” to Emerson’s intellectual development; Jerome Loving shows how Emerson’s change in vocation and his change in philosophical outlook went hand in hand; Glen M. Johnson demonstrates how Emerson developed a sense of himself as a professional author. The next three essays cover the period from 1841 to 1844 and include David Robin­son’s examination of The Method of Nature as marking a crucial point in Emerson’s life. Richard Lee Francis and David W. Hill show Emerson seeking his persona in Essays: Sec­ond Series and evaluate the significance of his eventual authorial voice. The subsequent essays range widely: San­ford E. Marovitz surveys and evaluates Emer­son’s long-time interest in Shakespeare; Robert E. Burkholder discusses the response of the press to English Traits; Ronald A. Sudol shows that Emerson’s reaction to technology is embodied in the poem, “The Adirondacs”; and Merton M. Sealts, Jr., concludes with a reminder that Emerson was, in precept and in life, a teacher.
