Description

This new selection of Thoreau's essays traces his trajectory as a writer for the outlets of his day-the periodical press, newspapers, and compendiums-and as a frequent presenter on the local lecture circuit. By arranging the writings chronologically, the volume re-creates the experience of Thoreau's readers as they followed his developing ideas over time. Jeffrey S. Cramer, award-winning editor of six previous volumes of works by Thoreau, offers the most accurate text available for each essay and provides convenient on-page annotations. He establishes context and guides the reader through unfamiliar allusions and references, plumbing the depths of Thoreau's writings with unprecedented insight. Among the essays in this book: * The Last Days of John Brown * Resistance to Civil Government [Civil Disobedience] * Thomas Carlyle and His Works * Natural History of Massachusetts * and many more
