    A Masterpiece of American Literature

    Thoreau is a poet at heart, and a philosophic genius in mind. Walden will keep readers hanging on every word. The true beauty of the Transcendentalist movement is highlighted in the best sense with Walden. The story is an autobiographical account of Thoreau's experiment to discover the true meaning of living deliberately. Walden is not a widely-known piece, but is a worthwhile read for anyone who has an appreciation for great literature.

    Interesting

    Envokes thoughts of necessities, while he demonstrates his vast knowledge. He definitely has disected each part of his philosohpy and portrayed it in a smooth form.

    There is new day to dawn the sun is but a morning star

    Self- reliance in the experiment of yet another great American original in his effort to live a life worthwhile, confront his true self. The language is aphoristic and poetically rich, not always easy going, but the reader will be rewarded by so much beauty and insight and such a great feeling of the life of the American observer and thinker as transcendent journey that it is well worth the extra effort. One of America's great books, and one which should be read by anyone who wishes to know its true character in love of individuality and independance.
