Henry David Thoreau (see name pronunciation; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American essayist, poet, and philosopher

Henry David Thoreau (see name pronunciation; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American essayist, poet, and philosopher. A leading transcendentalist, he is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay "Civil Disobedience" (originally published as "Resistance to Civil Government"), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state.

Henry David Thoreau was born on July 12, 1817, in Concord, Massachusetts. Over the years, Walden has inspired and informed the work of naturalists, environmentalists and writers. He began writing nature poetry in the 1840s, with poet Ralph Waldo Emerson as a mentor and friend. In 1845 he began his famous two-year stay on Walden Pond, which he wrote about in his master work, Walden. He also became known for his beliefs in Transcendentalism and civil disobedience, and was a dedicated abolitionist. While living at Walden Pond, Thoreau also had an encounter with the law. He spent a night in jail after refusing to pay a poll tax.

by Henry David Thoreau is one of the best-known non-fiction books written by an American. Published in 1854, it details Thoreau's sojourn in a cabin near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau lived at Walden for two years, two months, and two days, but Walden was written so that the stay appears to be a year, with expressed seasonal divisions. Thoreau did not intend to live as a hermit, for he received visitors and returned their visits.

  • I like reading Thoreau. I used to own a copy but stupidly loaned it to a friend. Walden reminds me to keep things simple.

  • Wisdom, inspiration, and motivation. Thoreau has been quoted so many times and in so many places. Reading this book gave me the opportunity to have Henry David Thoreau as a mentor in and a teacher. I would recommend this book to anyone. You'll receive the gift of the wisdom and the peace of mind that this brilliant man has provided through the ages.

  • I'm still reading this, but if you want a cheap way to read Thoreau, this is it. I have found many grammatical errors, probably when it was scanned into digital format, but for the price, what do you expect. As other raters indicated, I have yet to see an interactive table of contents, but again, for the price, it's still a great deal.

  • This was the first e-book that I bought for my Kindle Fire. My boyfriend loves Thoreau's works and had been asking me to read Walden. This edition does not have his complete works, but I found it to be a great price for expanding my knowledge of another author and to bring a smile to my boyfriend's face. I am very happy with my purchase of this book!

  • If you like Thoreau, you'll love this excellent copy. Promptly delivered

  • I wanted a companion piece to contrast Kierkegaard's work. I found that, to my surprise, they are similar in perspectives but with completely different backgrounds/lives. Fun to read with a Kindle as highlighting is easy and there is plenty to highlight.

  • Years ago I remember Thoreau being required reading while attending school. At the time, I thought the requirement a labor of misery. Now, as I revisit Thoreau I find insights only maturity and living life can provide. I find the appreciation of nature and the insights it provides most thought provoking. I would without doubt encourage others to read and seek the "meaning of life" as Thoreau would suggest.

  • Thos collection is a good collection for the price I paid for it. The only problem with it is the table of contents doesn't have page numbers! So you basically have to just flip through the book until you find the essay or work you want to read. Timeless classic worth anyone's time however.
