Writings by Emerson

Emerson was a prolific author: the 1903-1904 edition of his Works comprised twelve volumes, and modern editions of his sermons, letters, journals, notebooks, and lectures fill another forty volumes. A comprehensive examination and listing of Emerson’s writings is in Joel Myerson, Ralph Waldo Emerson: A Descriptive Bibliography (Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 1982) and Supplement to Ralph Waldo Emerson: A Descriptive Bibliography (New Castle, Del.: Oak Knoll Press; Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 2005).

The section “Emerson’s Writings” lists, first, separate publications by him, and, second, the titles of his essays and in which book of his they first appeared.
