Arranged for daily inspiration, wisdom from one of America's great visionary and philosophical minds.

"A chief event of life is that day on which we have encountered a mind that startled us." A Year with Emerson is a feast of 365 such days. Known throughout the world for his cogent, epigrammatic writing, admired as the "George Washington of American Literature," his work is even more enriching in bigger doses.

Daily almanac entries present the heart of Ralph Waldo Emerson's ideas and philosophy. Some were written on the very day in which they appear in the book, some are speculations and musings of the season and the natural world, but all are unfailingly wise, still relevant to our modern times.

Emerson's mind ranged across the universe even as he traveled the length and breadth of the United States and Europe. With Emerson as a companion and guide, we meet the ideas and personalities he championed and encountered, from Lincoln to John Muir, from Carlyle to Montaigne, and, of course, the close New England circle of Hawthorne, Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, and the Alcotts. With company such as this, and the scope of Emerson's vision, you're sure to encounter rich food for thought every day of the year.
