Walden Or Life in the Woods Book Description:

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.

Walden Book Description:

Henry David Thoreau built a log cabin in the Concord Forest in Massachusetts in 1845. Thoreau lived there for two years to try out an alternative to the hectic and economically successful everyday life. The reason: He wanted to consciously feel life in harmony with nature again. The minimalist lifestyle should create space and time for the essentials. Thoreau kept a diary about his feelings and experiences during his time in the forest. This book arose from his notes. It deals with his everyday problems, with economic and philosophical considerations, with the feeling of loneliness, with the animals of the forest, with the seasons and with the reading of classical works.

Henry David Thoreau Walden or Life in the Woods English Edition Book Description:

“When I wrote the following pages, or rather the bulk of them, I lived alone, in the woods, a mile from any neighbor, in a house which I had built myself, on the shore of Walden Pond, in Concord, Massachusetts, and earned my living by the labor of my hands only. I lived there two years and two months. At present I am a sojourner in civilized life again. I should not obtrude my affairs so much on the notice of my readers if very particular inquiries had not been made by my townsmen concerning my mode of life, which some would call impertinent, though they do not appear to me at all impertinent, but, considering the circumstances, very natural and pertinent. Some have asked what I got to eat; if I did not feel lonesome; if I was not afraid; and the like. Others have been curious to learn what portion of my income I devoted to charitable purposes; and some, who have large families, how many poor children I maintained. I will therefore ask those of my readers who feel no particular interest in me to pardon me if I undertake to answer some of these questions in this book.” “Walden, or Life in the Woods” by Henry David Thoreau is a reflection on simple living in natural surroundings. Thoreau describes his experiences over the course of two years in a cabin he built near Walden Pond in Massachusetts. “Walden” is one of the most celebrated works of American literature.
