The Oxford Handbook of Transcendentalism

Edited by Joel Myerson, Sandra Harbert Petrulionis, and and Laura Dassow Walls

Oxford Handbooks

  • Offers the most expansive, up-to-date collection of essays on the topic available--the volume contains over fifty wide-ranging contributions that cover transcendentalism's relationship not only to literature, but also to religion, politics, music, science, and the visual arts
  • Features contributions on an eclectic group of texts: in addition to examining standard works by Emerson, Thoreau, Whitman, and Fuller, the volumes goes beyond the familiar writings to consider a variety of forms, including periodicals, sermons, travel-writing, nature writing, and photography
  • Opens up the discussion of the movement beyond the New England-centered, Anglo American world: explores transcendentalism's relationship to the worlds of Ancient Greece, Asia, and Europe and considers the movement's relationship to American Indians
