November 20, 2019 -- Walden Pond
First published in 1854, Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau used this time to write his first book, ‘A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers’. The experience also inspired his later work ‘Walden’, in which Thoreau compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development.
“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”. (Henry David Thoreau)
