BeschreibungAn exploration of the origins of the two major transcendentalists' revolutionary approaches to time, as well as to other temporally related issues such as history, memory and change. It shows that Emerson and Thoreau agreed that nature did not need time, and did not acknowledge its existence.
PortraitJames R. Guthrie is Associate Professor of English at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. He is the author of Emily Dickinson's Vision: Illness and Identity in Her Poetry.
Pressestimmen"Guthrie presents a perceptive and well-informed study of an enigma that increasingly haunted the nineteenth-century mind: the nature of time. His relating Emerson's and Thoreau's thinking to an intellectual problem so crucial to the age makes his topic ipso facto important." - Gustaaf Van Cromphout
