What new mythologies sail through his head! Emerson's publication of "Thoughts on Modern Literature" in the newly established Dial is of particular importance because of his treatment of Goethe, whose life and work were at the center of a critical dispute that was crucial to the emergence of Transcendentalism.

      “When the sound and wholesome nature of man acts as an entirety, when he feels himself in the world as in a grand, beautiful, worthy and worthwhile whole, when this harmonious comfort affords him a pure, untrammeled delight: then the universe, if it could be sensible of itself, would shout for joy at having attained its goal and wonder at the pinnacle of its own essence and evolution. The Complete Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson With a Biographical Introduction and Notes by Edward Waldo Emerson The twelve-volume Concord edition of Emerson’s Complete Works features over 3, voluminous footnotes painstakingly compiled by his son.
