about

This new selection of Thoreau’s essays traces his trajectory as a writer for the outlets of his day—the periodical press, newspapers, and compendiums—and as a frequent presenter on the local lecture circuit. By arranging the writings chronologically, the volume re-creates the experience of Thoreau’s readers as they followed his developing ideas over time.

Jeffrey S. Cramer, award-winning editor of six previous volumes of works by Thoreau, offers the most accurate text available for each essay and provides convenient on-page annotations. He establishes context and guides the reader through unfamiliar allusions and references, plumbing the depths of Thoreau’s writings with unprecedented insight.

Among the essays in this book:

· The Last Days of John Brown
· Resistance to Civil Government [Civil Disobedience]
· Thomas Carlyle and His Works
· Natural History of Massachusetts
· and many more

Jeffrey S. Cramer is curator of collections, The Thoreau Institute at Walden Woods, and editor of six previous volumes by Henry D. Thoreau.
