Walden

by Random House Value

October 1, 2006 | Trade Paperback

Walden is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
By virtue of its casual, off-handedly brilliant wisdom and the easy splendor of its nature writing, Thoreau's account of his adventure in self-reliance on the shores of a pond in Massachusetts is one of the signposts by which the modern mind has located itself in an increasingly bewildering world. Deeply sane and invigorating in its awareness of humanity's place in the moral and natural order, Walden represents the progressive spirit of nineteenth-century America at its eloquent best.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Spiritual Classic Walden is the book I read at the beginning of every summer. I have been doing that since I first read it at the tender age of nineteen, having thus read it thirteen times. It is a marvelous piece of work, falling somewhere between personal journal, and philosophical treatise, sprinkled with a healthy dose of spirituality. It is not an easy read, but once the reader gets into the rhythm of the prose, s/he should find it comfortable enough to keep going. It is not an effortless book, but it is one that will grow with each subsequent read. It is full of little bits of advice on how to live a meaningful life that is not tied to wealth and material things, and one that is full of spiritual meaning. However, it is not preachy and does not attack social problems from a Judeo-Christian point of view, but rather applies a universally applicable set of morality to a healthy life. I cannot recommend this book enough.
