From 1837 to 1861 Henry David Thoreau kept a journal that began as a conventional record of ideas, grew into a writer's notebook, and eventually became the principal imaginative work of his career. The source of much of his published writing, the journal is also a record of both his interior life and his monumental studies of the natural history of his native Concord, Massachusetts.

About the Author:

Henry David Thoreau was born in Concord, Massachusetts in 1817. He graduated from Harvard in 1837, the same year he began his lifelong Journal. Inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thoreau became a key member of the Transcendentalist movement that included Margaret Fuller and Bronson Alcott. The Transcendentalists' faith in nature was tested by Thoreau between 1845 and 1847 when he lived for twenty-six months in a homemade hut at Walden Pond. While living at Walden, Thoreau worked on the two books published during his lifetime: Walden (1854) and A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (1849). Several of his other works, including The Maine Woods, Cape Cod, and Excursions, were published posthumously. Thoreau died in Concord, at the age of forty-four, in 1862.

Book Description PENGUIN GROUP Dez 1993, 1993. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 197x129x21 mm. Neuware - Henry D. Thoreaus Hauptwerk ist nicht 'Walden' oder 'Über den zivilen Ungehorsam', sondern sein Tagebuch, das er als 20-jähriger begann und bis wenige Tage vor seinem Tod 1861 führte. Darin notierte er Beobachtungen, die zu den bedeutendsten Naturschilderungen der Weltliteratur zählen, aber auch Gedanken und Refl exionen, die ihn als ganz eigenständigen philosophischen Kopf erkennen lassen. Durch die Lektüre wird deutlich, dass Natur und Politik wie Zurückgezogenheit und der Wunsch nach gesellschaftlicher Veränderung eine Einheit bilden. Stille, Unabhängigkeit, Antimaterialismus, Armut, Antiprüderie, Askese, Selbstdisziplin und mystische Suche sind neben überwältigend präzisen und gleichzeitig poetischen Beschreibungen des Lebens, der Natur, der großen und kleinen Lebewesen die bestimmenden Themen dieses Werks. Während dieses große Tagebuchwerk in Amerika Generationen von Künstlern und Schriftstellern beeinflusste und heute eine überwältigende Renaissance erlebt, ist es in Deutschland nahezu unbekannt. Unsere Ausgabe lädt ein, dieses Meisterwerk zu entdecken und Thoreau unzensiert zu erleben. 368 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9780140390858
