The Journal of Henry David Thoreau, 1837-1861 New York Review Books ClassicsNYRB Classics #ad - Henry david thoreau’s journal was his life’s work: the daily practice of writing that accompanied his daily walks, the revolving seasons, and a project in its own right—one of the most intensive explorations ever made of the everyday environment, the workshop where he developed his books and essays, and the changing self.

By the time he died in 1862, thoreau had witnessed the transformation of his world from a community of farmers and artisans into a bustling, at only forty-four years of age, interconnected commercial nation. His attempt to “live deliberately” in a small woods at the edge of his hometown of Concord has been a touchstone for individualists and seekers since the publication of Walden in 1854.
Henry David Thoreau: A Life #ad - But there was much more to Thoreau than his brief experiment in living at Walden Pond. What did that portend for the contemplative individual and abundant, published and unpublished, wild nature that Thoreau celebrated?
