Bibliographies

Listed here are the book-length editions of the writings of the Transcendentalists, primary and secondary bibliographies of them, selected biographies, and relevant Web sites. The critical literature is too vast to even sample here; the reader should check the secondary bibliographies of individual authors and the “Emerson, Thoreau, Fuller, and Transcendentalism” chapter in the annual American Literary Scholarship (Durham: Duke UP, 1965–) for guides to this voluminous body of material. Biographies are listed in chronological order.
