about


Walden is an American book written by famous transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings.  The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance.  First published in 1854, it 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.
"Resistance to Civil Government" is an essay by American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau that was first published in 1849. In it, Thoreau says 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. Thoreau was motivated in part by his disgust with slavery and the Mexican–American War.
