Emerson's famous quotes ' poems

Romanticism was a literary movement that swept through every country of Europe, the United States, and Latin America that lasted from about 1750 to 1870.It was about an imagination over reason and emotions over logic. The romantic writers replaced the classical, universal parts from 18th century with more complex and unique characters. They focused more about the character's personalities, their inner struggles, and their moods.

In October 1834, Emerson went to Concord, where was later called The Old Manse, to live with his step-grandfather Ezra Ripley. In 1835, Emerson bought a house on the Cambridge and Concord Turnpike and became one of the Concord's leading people. That same year, he was asked to give a lecture for the town's 200th anniversary. Also, the Battle Monument Committee requested him to put the Concord Battle in it.And this great poem, "Concord Hymn" was written. It described the battle not just a small event, but a great evidence that showed the courage of the spirits that fought for freedom.
