Description
Taking from Henry David Thoreau's Walden, "Civil Disobedience," The Maine Woods, and his abolitionist and nature writings, letters, and other texts, Thoreau scholar Kevin Van Anglen distills the intellectual author's surprisingly progressive thought into this browsable sampler of 750 quotations. Addressing subjects from English literature, the act of reading, and the art of love to independence, ecology, and democratic government, Thoreau was a true original writing at a time of burgeoning American exceptionalism, and his insight continues to thrill readers from all generations and backgrounds.

"A brilliant new sampling of Thoreau's words ... this collection stands as a document unto itself.... There is little that is routine or simplistic about this lovingly constructed—not to mention remarkably attractive—text. Van Anglen recognizes the breadth of intellect that underpinned the writings and utterances of Thoreau."—Capital Times
