Consciousness and Culture: Emerson and Thoreau Reviewed (Yale University Press, 2004). Porte offers a reevaluation of the work and careers of two commanding nineteenth-century figures—Emerson and Thoreau—as well as an assessment of their role as purveyors of culture to a provincial America. Praised as a fine, learned, and spirited book by the recognized authority on his subject, this collection of essays will appeal to all readers interested in the writings of Thoreau and Emerson.
