The introduction from John Erskine reads, "Emerson's ideas, whether stated in prose or in verse, are extremely modern. They have influenced writers in Europe and in America for nearly a century, and they are still the ideas of our time. We express them in different terms; if Emerson were here among us now he probably would find other terms than ours to formulate the ideas which we should both share, for he was the example of radical thinker, rare in history, who combined with advanced ideas an old-fashioned manner and a conservative culture."
