Walden and Civil Disobedience Book Excerpt:

Walden and Civil Disobedience Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862) Walden Walden (first published as Walden; or, Life in the Woods), 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 (to some degree) manual for self-reliance. Thoreau also used this time to write his first book, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. 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. The book 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. On the Duty of Civil Disobedience Civil Disobedience is an essay by Henry David Thoreau. Published in 1849 under the title Resistance to Civil Government, it expressed Thoreau's belief that people should not allow governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that people have a duty both to avoid doing injustice directly and to avoid allowing their acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Thoreau was motivated in part by his disgust with slavery and the Mexican-American War.

Walden, written by Henry David Thoreau, was 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 nature & ecology, lakes & ponds, and 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 reflects upon simple living in natual 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. Civil Disobedience also written by Henry David Thoreau is an essay that was first published in 1849. While Henry David Thoreau was considered a transcendentalist, his work of writings encompasses social sciences, political science, civil rights, and humanities. In Civil Disobedience, Henry David Thoreau argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Henry David Thoreau's motivation to pen the Civil Disobedience essay was in part due to his disgust with slavery and the Mexican-American War. As noted, Civil Disobedience is studied in social sciences, political science, civil rights, and humanities, yet while only an essay, Civil Disobedience is often textbook required reading. In addition to Walden and Civil Disobedience, this anthology volume also contains four additional popular essays by Henry David Thoreau which are: Life Without Principle, Slavery In Massachusetts, A Plea for Captain John Brown, and Walking.

Walden Book Excerpt:

One of the most famous non-fiction American books, Walden by Henry David Thoreau is the history of Thoreau's visit to Ralph Waldo Emerson's woodland retreat near Walden Pond. Thoreau, stirred by the philosophy of the transcendentalists, used the sojourn as an experiment in self reliance and minimalism... "so as 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." Walden stresses the significance of self-reliance, solitude, meditation, and nature in rising above the the life of quiet desperation lived by most people. that, he argues, is the lot of most people. Part autobiography, part manifesto Walden is a moving treatise on the importance distancing oneself from the consumerism of modern Western society and embracing nature in its place.

Walden Book Excerpt:

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.

Walden and On the Duty of Civil Disobedience Book Excerpt:

""Walden is a book that defies traditional classification. Thoreau moves nimbly between social commentary, political critique and vivid descriptions of the parenting behavior of wood-cocks. His assessment of his modern society is at once insightful and boorish. He identifies with piercing accuracy the enslavement of his fellow citizens to the complexities of modern life while neglecting the many gifts that are given to us in and through the City of Man." -From Brian Brown's Introduction. Although Henry David Thoreau spent only two years living by Walden Pond, his lengthy account of the experience is venerated by outdoorsmen, nature lovers, and all those disgusted with the burdens of a myopic nation. His writing is painstaking in its detail and rapturous in its descriptions of the simple beauty surrounding his unadorned cabin in the Massachusetts countryside. Thoreau's self-imposed exile from society challenged others to provide what he believed he offered: a candid and sincere account of one's own life, unsullied by the pursuit of wealth and influence. Walden is paired with Thoreau's essay On Civil Disobedience, in which Thoreau argues that it is the citizen's duty to resist a government's injustice. This Canon Classic has achieved mystical status: The rest of Thoreau's life, acquaintances, and accomplishments all fade into insignificance beside his short experiment at Walden Pond"--

Walden and On The Duty Of Civil Disobedience Book Excerpt:

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.

Walden and On The Duty Of Civil Disobedience Book Excerpt:

Walden, and On The Duty Of Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau is a real classic. 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. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion. -Henry David Thoreau ... ...
