Analyze the text of the excerpt from Emerson’s Nature and discuss how the writer explains (a) his experience with nature while in solitude and (b) the spiritual connection that he has with God through nature.
To successfully accomplish this task, you will need to analyze Emerson’s actual language. This is essential. I am not asking you what your thoughts are about Emerson’s views. I’m asking you to analyze what he wrote.
You need to make sure that you analyze the following key elements in Emerson’s essay:
a) what Emerson feels is required to achieve the kind of solitude he is discussing. How one can achieve it
b) how our awe for the stars help us to understand what true solitude means
c) how all “nature object” can fill us with the same sense of awe if we are open to their influence
d) how seeing this way is the way the poet sees
e) how seeing with this sense of wonder is the way many people experience nature when they are children
f) how the “transparent eyeball” passage represents the awe, the willingness to be open to the influence of all “nature objects”, the way the poet sees, the child like wonder that we can have for nature, and his connection with God through nature. <— be very thorough about this (do not skip)
Essay structure 1) make sure your introduction establishes the nature of what Emerson does in his essay and then make sure that your introduction is introducing us to your thesis and the analyze you will be covering in your body paragraphs
2) your thesis should be a specific claim about how Emerson connects with God through nature and solitude
3) your body paragraphs should connect your various analyzes of the passages you cover and directly relate to the claim that you make in your thesis
4) your conclusion should tie together everything you say in your back paragraphs and tell us, ultimately and conclusively, how Emerson’s essay explores his connection with God through solitude and nature. Your conclusion should be specifically connected to your thesis
