The Periodicals of American Transcendentalism

Save to active project


The present volume undertakes a study of the periodicals which were conducted or controlled by people who were known in their day as transcendentalists. An exception is the last chapter, dealing with The Index, a journal which throws so much light upon the later history of transcendentalism that the writer felt that it should not be omitted from his study.

This book does not presume to be a general treatise on transcendentalism, and it takes for granted a knowledge of such investigations as have been made by O. B. Frothingham and H. C. Goddard.

In making the present study the writer has profited by the assistance and suggestions of a number of gentlemen to whom he would express his gratitude: Professors K. B. Murdock and Bliss Perry, of Harvard University; J. B. Hubbell, of Duke University; and A. H. Thorndike, H. Schneider, E. E. Neff, and R. L. Rusk, of Columbia University. For his generous aid and kindly direction the author owes an especial debt to Professor Rusk, under whose supervision this work was written as a Columbia doctoral dissertation.

The chapter dealing with "The Western Messenger and The Dial" is reprinted with few changes from Studies in Philology for January, 1929.


Duke University April, 1931
