Maintained by Professor Ann Woodlief at Virginia Commonwealth University, this site was created to serve as a gathering place for information and primary documents about the transcendentalist movement in American literature and philosophy during the 19th century. Along with profiles of some of the main persons associated with the movement, including Ralph Waldo Emerson and Margaret Fuller, the site also has full-text editions of some of their books, essays, and poems. Beyond the portraits and writings of these influential writers, there are also essays on other thematic topics such as "The Transcendental Legacy in Philosophy and Religion." A resource that will be useful for students doing research on transcendentalists is an extended bibliography that lists a variety of additional scholarly works on the subject. In addition, if users are so compelled, the site has links to other sites where they can join electronic discussion groups on the transcendentalists.
