This paper discusses the works of Thoreau and Emerson and the birth of the transcendentalist movement in U.S. literature. The author looks at Emerson's essay "Self Reliance" and "The American Scholar" and Thoreau's "Civil Disobedience" and "Walden".
From the Paper:"Henry Thoreau and Ralph Emerson were two of the romantic American writers of the transcendentalist movement, which in essence stresses that less is more, that nature is to be studied, to be a true intellect you must read the classics and that living a life off the beaten path is more satisfying than one on the beaten path. Though Emerson began his writings first, Thoreau and Emerson are both credited with this movement. Emerson was clearly the founder of this initial movement, but Thoreau's writings were also critically acclaimed."
