Ralph Waldo Emerson: Two Essays on Nature

  • St. John's College, Mellon Hall 60 College Avenue Annapolis, MD, 21401 United States (map)

Ralph Waldo Emerson’s intense focus on individuality and self-development marked a turning point in American literature and thought. In this weekend course, we will read two quite different essays on the threads that connect the human soul to the natural world it lives in. Please join St. John’s tutor, William Pastille, for this conversational exploration of a fundamental idea in modern American consciousness. Saturday morning and afternoon, Sunday morning.
