Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 - April 27, 1882) was an American essayist, philosopher, poet, and leader of the Transcendentalist movement in the early 19th century. Emerson moved away from the religious and social beliefs of his contemporaries, formulating and expressing the philosophy of Transcendentalism in his 1836 essay, Nature. Considered one of the great orators of the time, his enthusiasm and respect for the audience enraptured crowds. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society.
