Overview

Thoreau was one of the greatest writers when it came nature. He was known for his keen observations, unaffected by desires for fame or wealth. His philosophy was routed in naturalism and a yearning for freedom in a political environment, which he felt conflicted with the laws of nature.

The following text, Canoeing in the Wilderness, illustrates Thoreau’s struggle to find a place in society, not quite accepting wilderness as the appropriate to live but at the same time rejecting civilization. In Canoeing in the Wilderness, Thoreau attempts to reach a middle ground.

Massachusetts native Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was a leading member of the American Transcendentalist movement, whose faith in nature was tested while Thoreau lived in a homemade hut at Walden Pond between 1845 and 1847. While there, Thoreau worked on the two books published in his lifetime: Walden and A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. The Maine Woods, Cape Cod, Excursions, and other works were published posthumously.
