Intermission Video: You Can Stretch Now




"In history, the great movement is when the savage is just ceasing to be a savage....that moment of transition, - the foam hangs but a moment on the wave; the sun himself does not pause on the meridian; literature becomes criticism, nervousness, and a gnawing when the first musical triumphant strain has waked the echoes." Emerson on his Age
Matthiessen, F. O. American Renaissance: Art and Expression in the Age of Emerson and Whitman. London: Oxford UP, 1980. Print.
