Abstract

The Oxford Handbook of Transcendentalism offers an interdisciplinary approach to the cultural impact of this movement. The volume contains over fifty chapters that cover Transcendentalism's relationship not only to literature, but also to religion, politics, music, science, and the visual arts. The book features chapters on an eclectic group of texts: in addition to examining standard works by Emerson, Thoreau, Whitman, and Fuller, the volume considers a variety of forms, including periodicals, sermons, travel writing, nature writing, and photography. The book also opens up the discussion of the movement beyond the New England-centered, Anglo American world and explores Transcendentalism's relationship to the worlds of Ancient Greece, Asia, and Europe and considers the movement's relationship to American Indians.
