The Journal of Henry David Thoreau, 1837

the journal of henry david thoreau 1837 1861 thoreau henry david searls damion stilgoe john r

Yet at roughly seven thousand pages, or two million words, it remains Thoreaus least-known work. Stilgoe is the author of many books and the Robert and Lois Orchard Professor in the History of Landscape at Harvard University. Henry David Thoreau 1817—1862 was born and lived the greater part of his life in Concord, Massachusetts. This is a superb and uniquely accessible edition of an essential American masterpiece. Suffering from tuberculosis, Thoreau traveled to the Great Lakes for the sake of his health, but finding no improvement and realizing that he was going to die, returned home to Concord to put his papers in order and to write his final essays, drawing as always on the Journal, the work that was the source of all his other works and the defining undertaking of his adult life.

The Journal, 1837

the journal of henry david thoreau 1837 1861 thoreau henry david searls damion stilgoe john r

This is a superb and uniquely accessible edition of an essential American masterpiece. Ranging freely over the world at large, the Journal is no less devoted to the life within. Stilgoe is the author of many books and the Robert and Lois Orchard Professor in the History of Landscape at Harvard University. What I have, and have had since purchase in the early 1970's, is the Dover two volume complete journals of Thoreau, every little observed gnat or weed, every small exclamation of awe or beauty, every depressed rumination over friendship. It is a treasure trove of some of the finest prose in English and, for those acquainted with it, its prismatic pages exercise a hypnotic fascination. Short trips to Maine and Cape Cod resulted in two post humously published books The Maine Woods and Cape Cod , and a visit to New York led to a meeting with Walt Whitman. In fact, by clearing away some of the underbrush in the fourteen volumes, it highlights the better-known passages and uncovers hidden gems and significant connections.

On July 4, 1845, he moved into the hut he'd constructed on Walden Pond, where he remained until September 6, 1847--a sojourn that inspired his great work Walden, published in 1854. I needed it as much. We complain greatly of the want of flow and sequence in books, but if the journalist only move himself from Boston to New York, and speak as before, there is link enough. It was in his journals that our Henry worked out what would become his essays and his books; where he polishes phrases and notes the bloom time of every plant in Concord.

In the 1850s, Thoreau became increasingly active in the abolitionist cause, meeting John Brown at Emerson's house in 1857 and, after the attack on Harpers Ferry, writing passionately in Brown's defense. Those who send the rain, whom I chiefly respect, will pardon me. He is also an award-winning translator from German, French, Norwegian, and Dutch, most recently of Rainer Maria Rilke's The Inner Sky: Poems, Notes, Dreams and Marcel Proust's On Reading.
