    Book details


This work explores Ralph Waldo Emerson's essays as mythic prose poems, suggesting a new approach to the practical criticism of his works. It presents a balanced selection of works from Emerson's early and late career and provides insightful readings of ""Circles"" and the Divinity School ""Address"".

Mythic Archetypes in Ralph Waldo Emerson explores the American writer's essays as mythic prose poems, suggesting a new approach to the practical criticism of Emerson's works. Richard O'Keefe uses the archetypal model - a critical tool seldom employed on American Romantics, yet frequently applied in the study of British Romantic poets such as William Blake - to contemporize methods of examining Emersonian texts.
