This is the first book devoted to the most important transatlantic source for Emerson and the development of American Transcendentalism: the work of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Coleridge's thought galvanised Emerson at a pivotal moment in his intellectual development in the years 1826-1836. Coleridge's discriminating distinctions and definitions, his call for cultivating the art of reflection, and his dynamic intellectual method gave Emerson new ways to think about a central question of Romanticism: what is the relationship between the natural, spiritual, and human worlds?
