Summary

Illustrated by classic American paintings and accompanied with a prescient new appraisal, this stunning new edition of Emerson's seminal 1836 essay is at once a meditation on the ways artists influence each other and a timely cris de couer to cherish and preserve America's landscape.

Widely considered to be the foundational text of the American landscape, Ralph Waldo Emerson's three-part essay, Nature, urges Americans to value and immerse themselves in their country's landscape. Nearly two centuries after its original publication, this captivating new edition by critic and historian Tyler Green brings together a selection of artistic works in dialog with Emerson's text. Green also offers his own fascinating take on Nature, exploring how the essay was informed by Emerson's experiences of art and, in turn, how it informed American art well into the twentieth century. The result is a unique melding of essay, art, and ideas that will draw new readers to Emerson's writings, while also introducing a fresh perspective on a critical contribution to the American canon.
