    Emerson was an unknown schoolteacher of 30 when he first visited England in 1833, but managed to secure introductions to Wordsworth, Coleridge and Carlyle, who became a lifelong friend. When he returned in 1847, he was a celebrated writer. These two visits form the basis of English Traits, a witty, affectionate portrait of a culture he admired profoundly but from which, as an American, he knew he must break free.
