Book Description :

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." -Henry Thoreau ; Walden Walden is a book by transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau. 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--to some degree--a 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. The book can be seen as performance art, a demonstration of how easy it can be to acquire the four necessities of life. Once acquired, he believed people should then focus their efforts on personal growth. 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. Also included in this edition is Thoreau's essay, Civil Disobedience. In it, Thoreau argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice.

Do you want to read Walden and Civil Disobedience? If so then keep reading... In 1845, Thoreau moved to a cabin that he built with his own hands along the shores of Walden Pond in Massachusetts. Shedding the trivial ties that he felt bound much of humanity, Thoreau reaped from the land both physically and mentally and pursued truth in the quiet of nature. In Walden, he explains how separating oneself from the world of men can truly awaken the sleeping self. Thoreau holds fast to the notion that you have not truly existed until you adopt such a lifestyle--and only then can you reenter society, as an enlightened being.

Book Description :

In these two American literary classics, Henry David Thoreau offers readers his experiences and thoughts on how to live a more fulfilling life and stand up for what is right. Having spent two years living in solitude at Walden Pond, he stresses the importance of a quiet, reflective life and the rewards of a nonmaterialistic existence in Walden. His essay "On the Duty of Civil Disobedience" discusses his belief in nonviolent protests against an unjust government--in particular, he attacks the US government's approval of slavery and support for the Mexican-American War. These unabridged versions were first published in 1854 and 1849, respectively, but their ideas are timeless.

Book Description :

Henry David Thoreau left his pencil-manufacturing business and began building a cabin on the shore of Walden Pond near Concord, Massachusetts. This lyrical yet practical-minded book is at once a record of the 26 months Thoreau spent in withdrawal from society - an account of the daily minutiae of building, planting, hunting, cooking, and, always, observing nature - and a declaration of independence from the oppressive mores of the world he left behind. Elegant, witty, and quietly searching, Walden remains the most persuasive American argument for simplicity of life clarity of conscience.

Book Description :

Henry David Thoreau was een meester van alle onderwerpen, hoewel hij vooral bekend staat om zijn werk en geloof in transcendentalisme. Zijn geschriften zijn allemaal buitengewoon persoonlijk en zijn voorbeelden van natuurlijke waarnemingen in de echte wereld. Thoreau geloofde in de rechten van alle mensen, en hij geloofde dat mensen zich terug moesten trekken in de natuur om terug te keren naar de natuurlijke orde van de wereld. In "Walden" vertelt Thoreau over een periode waarin hij in een door mensen gemaakte hut in de buurt van Walden Pond in Massachusetts woonde. De denker wenste zijn geest te zuiveren van de gestructureerde sociale orde en in plaats daarvan perspectief over zichzelf te krijgen. Hij geloofde er volledig in zelfvoorzienend te zijn en de transcendentale filosofie te volgen. Terwijl hij in Walden Pond was, deed Thoreau een ontdekking over zijn mening over de regering, die hij uiteenzette in " Hij was van mening dat de mensen op hun hoede moesten zijn voor overheidscontrole, ongeacht hoe goedbedoeld de beslissingen zijn. Deze gedachten waren geïnspireerd door Thoreau's haat tegen slavernij over de hele wereld, evenals de problemen die verband hielden met de Mexicaans-Amerikaanse oorlog. Thoreau was van mening dat de mensen geen belasting moesten betalen als ze het niet eens zijn met iets waarvan ze denken dat het verkeerd is. Deze individuen betaalden voor slavernij en een oorlog waar ze het niet mee eens waren, en het betalen van belastingen betekende instemming met de volledige controle van de regering. "Walden and Civil Disobedience" is een zeer intelligente tekst geschreven door een van Amerika's meest productieve schrijvers, en beide essays zijn klassiekers in de Amerikaanse literatuurcanon.

Book Description :

Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built in the woods near Walden Pond, Massachusetts. Thoreau compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development. Part memoir, part personal quest, the book is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, where Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Civil Disobedience or Resistance to Civil Government is an essay by Thoreau in which he argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Walking is a transcendental essay in which Thoreau talks about the importance of nature to mankind, and how people cannot survive without nature, physically, mentally, and spiritually, yet we seem to be spending more and more time entrenched by society. For Thoreau walking is a self-reflective spiritual act that occurs only when you are away from society, that allows you to learn about who you are, and find other aspects of yourself that have been chipped away by society.
