Priyanka Malhotra; Dr. Shuchi Agrawal

                 Literature has been confounded with the innumerable thinkers and scholars who collaborated in the development of society. They are contributing to advocating their ideas to bring out the changes in society. Emerson’s “The American Scholar”, considered as one of the “finest and most popular” philosophical work, investigating the duties of the scholar as one of the functions of the human being. Emerson, a commendable man was also responsible for bringing changes in the society. He was allured by the skeptical views of the metaphysical poets and marked effect in the form of his actions. The objective of this study is to demonstrate the replica of the ‘American Scholar’ in the depiction of Arnold’s ‘Scholar Gypsy’. It shows how Arnold’s manifestation of Scholar Gypsy is appropriately fitted into Emerson’s persona of the ‘American Scholar’.
