Excerpt

A new venture into a field from which biography and criticism have drawn repeated and ample harvests may avert the charge of impertinence by pointing to the fresh materials in the ten-volume edition of the Journals, 1909-14, brought out under the careful and tasteful editorship of Edward Waldo Emerson and Waldo Emerson Forbes. Of this copious and varied matter the present work has made extensive use. References to Emerson's works in this volume are based exclusively on the "Centenary" edition. Essays and smaller prose compositions generally are referred to by title followed by volume and page in the "Centenary" edition: thus, Fate, VI, 41. Poems are classed under the general title Poems followed by the appropriate volume and page. The following abbreviations have been used: Jour. for "Journals"; "Cabot," for J. E. Cabot's well-known and admirable Memoir; E. in C., for Dr. Emerson's Emerson in Concord, and C. E. C. for Carlyle-Emerson Correspondence. Garnett's Emerson, Holmes's Ralph Waldo Emerson, Professor Woodberry's Emerson, Conway's Emerson at Home and Abroad, are referred to by the names of their authors, Garnett, Holmes, Woodberry, and Conway.
