He is appreciated all over the world for his essays. About the significance of his essays Mathew Arnold, a great critic, is of the view, " As Wordsworth's poetry is, in my judgement, the most important work done in our language during the present century, so are the Emerson's essays, I think, the most important work done in prose" .  His prose style is marked by its aphoristic quality and epigrammatic terseness. The sentences are remarkably impressive, handled with subtleness and have poetic beauty.
