Генри Дэвид Торо Walden, and On The Duty Of Civil Disobedience

Henry David Thoreau A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers


Based on a trip with his brother in 1839, «A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers» is an excellent example of Thoreau's talent for naturalistic writing. In exquisite detail Thoreau depicts the nature that surrounds him over the course of his trip. One of only two books to be published during his lifetime, Thoreau began work on «A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers» following his brother's death in 1842, however the work was not fully completed and published until 1849. A failure when first published «A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers» has since been recognized as one of Thoreau's great naturalist works.

Henry David Thoreau A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers


Based on an 1839 boat trip Thoreau took with his brother from Concord, Massachusetts, to Concord, New Hampshire, and back, this classic of American literature is not only a vivid narrative of that journey, it is also a collection of thought-provoking observations on such diverse topics as poetry, literature, and philosophy, Native American and Puritan histories of New England, friendship, sacred Eastern writings, traditional Christianity, and much more.Written, like Walden, while Thoreau lived at Walden Pond, and published in 1849, A Week (his first book) shares many themes with Walden, published in 1854. Both dramatize the process of self-renewal in nature and resolutely rail against the official culture and politics of the «trivial Nineteenth Century.» Blending keen observation with a wealth of perceptive and informed reflections, Thoreau develops a continuous and lyrical dialogue between the past and present, as particular scenes on shore trigger reflections on the region's history and legends. Originally conceived as a travel book, A Week eventually became much more — one of the most intellectually ambitious works of 19th-century America, and a requiem for Thoreau's brother John, who died from a sudden illness in 1842.Of Thoreau and this work, Ralph Waldo Emerson said, «H. D. Thoreau is a great man in Concord, a man of original genius and character. I think it is a book of wonderful merit, which is to go far and last long.»
