Ralph Waldo Emerson

Natures’ influence on Emerson’s writing is key to his style. Ralph Waldo Emerson writes about truth, beauty, and man’s over soul, through nature as being a type of “middle-man”. How he writes about the vastness of the universe and the earth, he uses nature as both a literal and symbolic meaning.

It’s most apparent with nature’s influence on his writing when he writes his story about “nature” and divides it into 8 seperate sub categories. Nature is also apparent in his writing when he expresses his religious views and describes it under symbolic meaning on nature.
