Publisher's Summary

A classic in American literature that is "...a personal declaration of independence, a social experiment, and a voyage of spiritual discovery" (The Library of America). 

Henry David Thoreau was born July 12, 1817, in Concord, Massachusetts, where he later died on May 6, 1862. He attended Harvard University where he studied the classics and a smattering of foreign languages. In 1845, after years of literary and emotional struggle, friend and colleague Ralph Waldo Emerson invited Thoreau to build a cabin on his land near Walden Pond, the location of which became Thoreau's inspiration. Walden records the doctrines of transcendentalism that he lived, supported, and for which he became famous. He focuses on the concept of self-knowledge and encourages all people to find some way to learn more about themselves and the world around them. Thoreau is remembered as a major American essayist, poet, and practical philosopher.

Brilliant Perspective on Life

This book really made me yearn for the woods and living a simpler life. The voice actor did a great job portraying the ideas explored in the book. While I do not agree with all the points made, it had made me seriously question why I do/want certain things in my own life.
