Emerson said...Or was it Ellison?
So reading this article I felt a little confused. I kept getting the names Ellison and Emerson mixed up when I was reading. It wasn't until a couple pages in that I even realized that I was making this mistake. The names are really close and (from what I gathered) their ideas are very similar.
I also think that I would have better understood this article if I knew more about Emerson or Ellison as real people and actually read Emerson's "Eloquence." I feel like this article is speaking more (making judgments) about the author more than making a claim about the actual book. Or did I also overlook this?
