I think that Emersons Self Reliance is probably inteded for the casual reader of the classics or youth interested in developing their minds Emerson makes many points through a series of figures of speech A figure of speech is a word or phrase that describes one thing in terms of another Its not meant to be taken literally though However many of his figures of speech require rereading before you can fully understand Emersons point One of the quotes in Self Reliance that really caught my eye was A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds I took this quote to mean that just because youve always done something a certain way doesnt mean that you should continue in that way when something better comes along Emerson expressed his feelings through nature and perceived through intuition rather than just understanding logic This essay seemed rather circular presenting similar ideas from many different angles He uses short and sweet statements that express wise or clever observations about life I had to reread this poem several times to fully understand his clever words of wisdom I believed that this essay is pretty motivation Bibliography My brain
