Excerpt from Emerson's Essay on Compensation

Emerson's was a varied life. His name is associ ated with many movements. Of some of them he was the vital force. Consequently to those who knew him well nothing about the man impressed them more deeply than the dimensions of his interests and in?u ences. It is this, perhaps, that marks the widest gulf between him and all others of his generation. He was the first to make the outside world aware that there was such a thing as American letters. And at home he became in his own life time a cult in the broad sense, like Carlyle, like Browning. Compared with his in?uence as a social factor there is somewhat ephemeral in the brilliant careers of his platform con temporaries. Compared with his in?uence as an idol for the rising generation there is somewhat narrowly literary about Hawthorne and Poe for example: as there is about Stevenson and Pater and Arnold com pared with Browning and Carlyle.
