Ralph Waldo Emerson, a lecturer, essayist, philosopher, and poet, was a highly influential representative of the 19th century American transcendentalist movement, which makes his bald ideas and works worth exploring by students even nowadays. Here you can find essays on his radical views and their political implications (e.g. for national consciousness), on his perspective over individualism (e.g. the qualities a self-reliant individual), but also on his understanding and appreciations of the surrounding nature. His revolutionary views on individualism are important given how central the latter is to our society. Whichever the topic, an essay has to be properly structured (introduction, conclusion, paragraphs, ideas, etc.) and to respect grammar and stylistic rules – review the samples below to get a better idea.
