Overview

Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, the Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms.

In 1845, Henry David Thoreau retreated from society in favor of a life among nature. What resulted was WALDEN, a memoir that brings to life the woods around Walden Pond and chronicles Thoreau's two years of self-sufficiency and introspection. Covering topics as diverse as economic independence and spiritual enlightenment, these essays have become a hallmark of American transcendentalism.

About The Author

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.
