Description
"'Say's I to myself' should be the motto of my journal," wrote Henry David Thoreau in 1851. Begun in 1837, Thoreau's Journal spans a period of 25 years and runs to more than two million words, providing both a record of Thoreau's interior life and a key to his other writings. Jeffrey Cramer, curator of collections at the Thoreau Institute at Walden Woods, here presents selections from the entire journal that reveal Thoreau as a writer, thinker, naturalist, social reformer, neighbor, and friend. Cramer's substantive annotations appear in parallel, offering contextual notes on Thoreau's life and underscoring the relationship between journal passages and the texts of his other works.

"One thinks of Thoreau's work as a great naturalist, but his words about art, life, politics, friendship—and even his neighbors—make a lovely book to read, sitting by a cozy fire."—Chicago Tribune (Editor's Choice)
