Analysis of Henderson’s Journey in Transcendence

Dingming Wang, Dini Zhang

Abstract


Ralph Waldo Emerson’s theory of Transcendentalism has a great influence on American Nobel prize for literature winner Saul Bellow and his novel Henderson the Rain King. This paper tries to analyse the main process of Henderson’s travel in Africa and to prove that his travel is a journey to nature and soul.
