Henry David Thoreau Walden or Life in the Woods henry david thoreau walden
2009 reprint of 1854. Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862) is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. Thoreau's lasting contributions were his writings on natural history and philosophy, where he anticipated the methods and findings of ecology and environmental history, two sources of modern day environmentalism. His literary style interweaves close natural observation, personal experience, pointed rhetoric, symbolic meanings, and historical lore; while displaying a poetic sensibility, philosophical austerity, and "Yankee" love of practical detail. He was also deeply interested in the idea of survival in the face of hostile elements, historical change, and natural decay; at the same time imploring one to abandon waste and illusion in order to discover life's true essential needs. Walden remains to this day one of the great books of American literature.

Henry David Thoreau Walden henry david thoreau walden
Arguably America's most famous nonconformist, Thoreau lived at Walden Pond from July 1845 to September 1847, chronicling his experiences there. It was an experiment in living a life unhindered by social trappings and tradition. His work was not widely renowned for years after his death, but later became a staple in modern culture, defining not only what it means to be an American, but what it means to be human. Come see where the idea of marching to the beat of a different drummer originated. Walden is a classic and essential reading.

Henry D. Thoreau Walden. or, Life in the woods henry david thoreau walden
Walden, by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings.The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, it details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. The book compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development.

Henry David Thoreau Walden henry david thoreau walden
Henry David Thoreau's story of his years spent in a small cabin in the Massachusetts forests has had an international impact out of all proportion to its apparently simple bucolic subject. But in Walden, Thoreau uses his life in the woods to produce both a social critique of Western Culture, and to examine many fundamental questions of human existence. The book is part voyage of self-discovery, part alternative manifesto for a better world, and comes to a series of conclusions on simplicity, contemplation and self-sufficiency that are surprisingly modern in their outlook, arguing that very little of our modern 'needs' are necessary to achieve a happy and harmonious existence.

Henry David Thoreau Walden, or, Life in the Woods henry david thoreau walden
2016 Reprint of 1854 Edition. This is perhaps Thoreau’s most famous transcendentalist work. The text is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau used this time to write his first book, “A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers.” The experience later inspired “Walden”, in which Thoreau compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development. By immersing himself in nature, Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Simple living and self-sufficiency were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by transcendentalist philosophy, a central theme of the American Romantic Period.
