The Evolution of the Conservation Movement, 1850-1920
Writer, philosopher, and naturalist Henry David Thoreau was born on July 12 , 1817, in Concord, Massachusetts. Associated with the Concord-based literary movement called New England Transcendentalism, he embraced the Transcendentalist belief in the universality of creation and the primacy of personal insight and experience. Thoreau's advocacy of simple, principled living remains compelling, while his writings on the relationship between people and the environment helped define the nature essay. After graduating from Harvard in 1837, Thoreau held a series of odd jobs. Encouraged by Concord neighbor and friend

More Thoughts on Beans by Amy Belding Brown When he mentioned that he was resolved to know beans,
Henry knew it would get a good laugh,
for one thing New Englanders do with their speech
is to sort out the wheat from the chaff.
And so, as he tended bean plants by the pond,
and studied their habits and style,
it never occurred to his dexterous mind
that folks might not notice his smile. If, when reading Thoreau, you encounter a phrase that tempts you to find hairs to split, just remember what Henry himself knew so well: great philosophy favors great wit. (poem refers to chapter seven of Walden The Bean-Field Thoreau's Flute by Louisa May Alcott (written after Thoreau's death) We sighing said, "Our Pan is dead; His pipe hangs mute beside the river Around it wistful sunbeams quiver, But Music's airy voice is fled.

27. Simply Walking
Mark Stabb s essay reflecting on Thoreau s Walking.
Simply Walking by Mark Stabb Thoreau Reader: Home Walking I cringe to hear bloated phrases like sustainable development, biological diversity and ecosystem management used to promote nature conservation. They mean nothing to most people. When I am called on to decipher such terms, I turn to Henry David Thoreau's perfect expression of our dependence on nature: "... in Wildness is the preservation of the World." Wildness — now that's a concept with staying power. But where did he make this statement and what was he trying to tell us? The context seemed to have slipped away long ago. The line was not in my meagre Thoreau collection, so I tried my nearest university library. I tracked several experts quoting other experts before one gave me the source: an 1862 essay called simply Walking Thoreau lectured on walking in the 1850s, and later sent a manuscript of his talk to the Atlantic Monthly, which published it a month after he died. Admirers consider Walking to be one of Thoreau's best brief statements of his philosophy. Thoreau found strength in walking and salvation in the wild. "A town is saved," he said, "not more by the righteous men in it than by the woods and swamps that surround it." The untamed "wildness" that stretched westward from 19th century New England held primitive forests and "dismal swamps" that were sacred to him. But his reverence is not that portrayed by romantic etchings of the day. Thoreau's wildness was the tangible "marrow of nature" that you can eat, drink, climb, breathe and sing. It was also a state of mind — a place free from the shackles of society and conformity. In wildness, he believed, we can find not only serenity, but sanity.

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer Different Drummer
See : Individualism . Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." This is one of the most quoted passages from perhaps America's most famous nonfiction book. Thoreau's detailed account of living in a small cabin on Walden Pond skewers conventional thinking. Embracing solitude to observe nature still sounds appealing over 150 years later. The final disk includes a searchable PDF file of the complete text of the book. Foster's expressive reading in his clear and strong voice lends authority and authenticity to Thoreau's words.

30. Thoreau Papers
Advice from Fred Musante for students writing a paper on Thoreau.
Writing a Paper on Thoreau by Fred Musante Thoreau Reader: Home Walden Express It really isn't very difficult to work up a paper or a class presentation on Thoreau. A little cleverness and a little work is all it takes... I'm no expert on Thoreau, but I do know some things about him and his work. He's entertaining and interesting. He has been important in a number of ways. His ideas have found their way into civil rights and environmental movements around the world. "Civil Disobedience" is an important work of political philosophy and Walden is an important work of nature writing. No one can be a serious scholar without reading those two works. Because he resisted paying a tax out of a conscientious objection to the Mexican War, and because he was the spiritual ancestor of founders of the conservation movement in the United States, his work gained considerable popularity in the 1960's due to opposition to the Vietnam War and the establishment of the first Earth Day. Thoreau is also closely identified with Transcendentalism, and he derived much of his thinking from unusual (at his time) sources that had just recently been published in English, such as Buddhist and Hindu texts. He was concerned with what had been done to American Indians and African slaves, and was outspoken about it. He was a social critic on par with Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde, although he wasn't a satirist. He did not read fiction because he felt that it was frivolous and that he didn't have time to read all of the nonfiction he wanted to read. That's enough for starters.

Lucid, Provocative, Existential
Henry David Thoreau
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. . . . I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest term born July 12, 1817, Concord, Massachusetts
died May 6, 1862, Concord, Massachusetts Widgets -:- Henry David Thoreau Reading List by Katharena -:- Henry David Thoreau: Main Page Impressive Thoreau Poetry Sampler ... Katharena's Essential Thoreau, for the Passionate Nature Lover! Henry David Thoreau, born July 12, 1817, Concord, Mass., U.S. died May 6, 1862, Concord. To all appearances, Thoreau lived a life of bleak failure. His neighbours viewed him with familiarity verging on contempt. He had to pay for the printing of A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers; when it sold a mere 220 copies, the publishers dumped the remaining 700 on his doorstep. Walden (the second and last of his books published during his lifetime) fared less badly but still took five years to sell 2,000 copies. And yet Thoreau is now regarded as both a classic American writer and a cultural hero of his country. The present opinion of his greatness stems from the power of his principal ideas and the lucid, provocative writing with which he expressed them.

Henry David Thoreau: (Anti?) Coffee Achiever
by Alex Scofield Imagine retreating to nature, embarking on a journey in living simply, confronting only life’s essentials. You’d be forced to bring only the barest of necessities, and debate what few belongings you simply couldn’t live without.
Do You Need Coffee?
If you think that Henry David Thoreau never pondered the significance of coffee during his famed stay at Walden Pond, think again. Historians agree that when Thoreau moved into his Walden home in 1845, there were not yet any Starbucks franchises in Concord, Massachusetts. Yet coffee makes a surprising number of appearances in Walden, and Thoreau has plenty to say on the subject. Many of his Concord neighbors were drinking it, and today’s coffee lover might be surprised how familiar a role coffee played in the lives of Concordians a century and a half ago.

37. Thoreau
A discussion of Thoreau s contradictory relationship to both Transcendentalism and to science. In considering this, especial emphasis is put on Thoreau s observations of insects, so that entomology becomes a crucial link.
"Nowadays almost all man`s improvements, so called, as the building of houses and the cutting down of the forest and of all large trees, simply deform the landscape, and make it more and more tame and cheap." (Thoreau, "Walking", 1862) "It`s OUR flag too" (anti-war poster, Washington, 1/18/03) paper ISBN 1-4010-3328-8 hardback ISBN 1-4010-3329-6 "contains a great deal of valuable material" ( Thoreau Society Bulletin The Man-Moth always seats himself facing the wrong way and the train starts at once at its full, terrible speed (Elizabeth Bishop) THE METAMORPHOSES OF WALDEN In 1848 Thoreau transcribed sections of Coleridge`s Hints towards the Formation of a More Comprehensive Theory of Life which had just been published. At the same time he made a copy of Spenser`s "Muiopotmos or the Fate of the Butterflie," where the life of the insects is viewed by the reader from as great a distance as the Olympians look down upon humanity, akin to that doublet Thoreau identified in his own character watching his active self (134-35). Coleridge`s Hints is "a treatise on the use of natural history as means to the discovery of underlying laws of creation" and was an essential literary starting-point for Thoreau`s more technical exploration of what is today cladistics.

Classroom Issues and Strategies
In my experience, an understanding of Thoreau rarely follows the initial exposure to his writings. The appreciation of the profundity and subtlety of his thought comes only after serious study, and only a few of the most committed students are willing to expend the necessary effort. Many, upon first reading him, will conclude: that he was a churlish, negative, antisocial malcontent; or that he advocated that all of us should reject society and go live in the woods; or that each person has complete license to do as he/she pleases, without consideration for the rights of others; or that he is unconscionably doctrinaire. His difficult, allusive prose, moreover, requires too much effort. All such judgments are at best simplistic and at worst, wrong. If an instructor is to succeed with Thoreau, strategies to meet these responses will need to be devised. The best, in my opinion, is to spend the time explicating to students key sentences and paragraphs in class and responding to questions. Above all, students must be given a knowledge of the premises of Romanticism that constitute Thoreau's world view.
