Описание: To coincide with the bicentennial of Thoreau's birth and TarcherPerigee's publication of "Expect Great Things: The Life of Henry David Thoreau," here is a sumptuous rediscovery edition of the first illustrated volume of Thoreau's classic, as originally issued in 1897. In 1897, thirty-five years after Thoreau's death, Houghton Mifflin issued a two-volume "Holiday Edition" of "Walden" illustrated with thirty remarkable engravings, daguerreotypes, and period photographs. In 1902 the publisher collected the work into a single volume. Now, to mark the bicentennial of Thoreau's birth in 1817, this timeless landmark is reproduced with all of the original illustrations and the complete text of his mystical, practical, magisterial record of a life in the woods.

Описание: In 1848 and again in 1849, Henry David Thoreau delivered a lecture in Concord, Massachusetts on “the relationship of the individual to the state.” The essay now known as Civil Disobedience is a significant and widely admired contribution to abolitionist literature, as well as an anti-war tract, but Thoreau’s focus is less on political organization and solidarity than it is on personal choice and individual responsibility. Cultivating personal integrity in the face of political injustice is the project Thoreau defends in Civil Disobedience; this focus has made the work highly influential to 20th- and 21st-century political movements.Robert Pepperman Taylor’s new Introduction explains the work’s specific political context, helping readers to understand the text as Thoreau wrote it. The edition also offers a number of historical documents on Thoreau’s abolitionism; the United States’ war with Mexico; and Thoreau’s philosophical development in relation to other thinkers.

Описание: America's greatest nature writer and a political thinker of international renown, Henry David Thoreau crafted essays that reflect his speculative and probing cast of mind. In his poems, he gave voice to his private sentiments and spiritual aspirations in the plain style of New England speech. The Library of America now brings together these indispensable works in one authoritative volume. Spanning his entire career, the twenty-seven essays gathered here chart the range of Thoreau's interests and the evolution of his thinking, particularly on nature and politics. They vary in style from the ambling rhythm of "Natural History of Massachusetts" and "A Winter Walk" to the concentrated moral outrage of "Slavery in Massachusetts" and "A Plea for Captain John Brown." Included are "Civil Disobedience," Thoreau's great exploration of the conflict between individual conscience and state power that continues to influence political thinkers and activists; "Walking," a meditation on "wildness" and civilization; and "Life Without Principle," a passionate critique of American materialism and conformity. Also here are literary essays, including pieces on Homer, Chaucer, and Carlyle; the travel essay "A Yankee in Canada"; speeches in defense of John Brown; and works on natural history written during the last years of Thoreau's life, such as "The Succession of Forest Trees," "Wild Apples," and "Huckleberries." Many of the poems are presented here in versions based on Thoreau's journal and manuscripts. Poems he excerpted for A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers and Walden appear in their entirety. Included are "Sic Vita," with Thoreau's searching characterization of himself as "a parcel of vain strivings," and the visionary "Inspiration."

Автор: Chura, Patrick Название: Thoreau the land surveyor ISBN: 0813041473 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780813041476 Издательство: Eurospan Рейтинг: Цена: 32210 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: <p>Henry David Thoreau, one of America’s most prominent environmental writers, supported himself as a land surveyor for much of his life, parcelling land that would be sold off to loggers. In the only study of its kind, Patrick Chura analyses this seeming contradiction to show how the best surveyor in Concord combined civil engineering with civil disobedience. </p> <p>Placing Thoreau's surveying in historical context, <em>Thoreau the Land Surveyor</em> explains the cultural and ideological implications of surveying work in the mid-nineteenth century. Chura explains the ways that Thoreau's environmentalist disposition and philosophical convictions asserted themselves even as he reduced the land to measurable terms and acted as an agent for bringing it under proprietary control. He also describes in detail Thoreau's 1846 survey of Walden Pond. By identifying the origins of <em>Walden</em> in--of all places--surveying data, Chura re-creates a previously lost supporting manuscript of this American classic. </p>
