Daily Observations from the Author: Henry David Thoreau. How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book, wrote Henry David Thoreau in Walden. Today that book continues to provoke, inspire, and change lives all over the world, and each rereading is fresh and challenging. Yet as Thoreau's countless admirers know, there is more to the man than Walden. An engineer, poet, teacher, naturalist, lecturer, and political activist, he truly had multiple lives to lead, and each one speaks forcefully to us today. Sponsored by the Thoreau Society, the brief, handsomely presented books in this series offer the thoughts of a great writer on a variety of topics, some that we readily associate with him, some that may be surprising. Each volume includes selections from his familiar published works as well as from less well known lectures, letters, and journal entries. The books have been designed by renowned illustrator and book artist Barry Moser. Ronald A. Bosco is Distinguished Service Professor of English and American Literature at the University at Albany, past-president of the Thoreau Society, and chair of The Friends of Walden Pond Committee. Wesley T. editor for the Thoreau Society. Steve Grant is a journalist who writes on natural history and New England heritage topics for the Hartford Courant.

Writing Nature from the Author: Sharon Cameron. At his death, Henry Thoreau left the majority of his writing unpublished. The bulk of this material is a journal that he kept for twenty-four years. Sharon Cameron's major claim is that this private work (the Journal) was Thoreau's primary work, taking precedence over the books that he published in his lifetime. Her controversial thesis views Thoreau's Journal as a composition that confounds the distinction between public and private—the basis on which our conventional treatment of discourse depends.

The Spiritual Journal Of Henry David Thoreau from the Author: Malcolm Clemens Young. This title explores the religious nature of ""Thoreau's Journal"". Most people who care about nature cannot help but use religious language to describe their experience of it. We can trace many of these conceptions of nature and holiness directly to influential nineteenth-century writers, especially Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862). In Walden, he writes that 'God himself culminates in the present moment', and that in nature we encounter, 'the workman whose work we are'. But what were the sources of his religious convictions about the meaning of nature in human life? As the most comprehensive study of Thoreau's spirituality from a Christian perspective, ""The Spiritual Journal of Henry David Thoreau"" is the first to seriously examine connections between Thoreau's religious practices and those of his Protestant forebears. While a few writers have considered the relation between Thoreau's thought and Christian doctrine, this book instead outlines the links between Thoreau's religious practices (such as keeping a spiritual journal, studying nature, and walking) and those of earlier New England Protestants. This work is also the first study to compare his journal with the spiritual journals of prominent Puritans, Anglicans, Methodists, and Quakers. It is also one of the first books to treat spiritual journals as a distinct literary genre, while comparing theological expectations of nature ranging from the American Puritan Jonathan Edwards to nineteenth-century Romantic walkers and Thoreau's fellow Transcendentalists.
