Of woodland pools, spring-holes & ditches : excerpts from the journal of Henry David Thoreau wherein he observes and reflects upon the nature of life and vernal pools by Henry David Thoreau ( Book )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henry David Thoreau has long been revered for his writings and observations on the natural world. His words evoke his environment with stunning clarity as well as his own innate sense of wonder. His journal, from which the text of Of Woodland Pools, Spring-Holes and Ditches is drawn, shares these strengths, providing an intimate view of Thoreau's day-to-day existence. The selected excerpts are pulled from the months of March, April, and May, and all pertain to what are now called vernal pools - temporary pools of water, free of fish, at their peak in the spring, and the breeding ground for numerous creatures. In this volume, Thoreau's words are accompanied by 28 engravings by artist Abigail Rorer. The delicacy and detail of these engravings make them the perfect companion to Thoreau's words, adding another layer of beauty to his observations. Each engraving is a work of art in and of itself, enriched by the text and Thoreau's visionary descriptions. The engravings are based on the woods and vernal pools explored by Thoreau, lending them undeniable authenticity. Thoreau once proclaimed, "I have an appointment with spring." Through his words and Rorer's art, so too does the reader

The sound of a flail : reconstructions of Thoreau's early "life without principle" lectures by Bradley P Dean ( Book )
1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although "Life without Principle" is generally recognized as the most cogent, forceful, and uncompromising statement of Thoreau's philosophy--of his attitudes toward the art of life---this essay has never been the subject of any but the most cursory analyses. That Thoreau's essay deserves far more critical attention than it has received is apparent, for much of his greatness as an author can be attributed to the sincerity, the power, and the beauty with which he addresses the question: How to live. And nowhere do we find Thoreau confronting this profoundly moral question so pointedly as in "Life without Principle." The ambition of this study is to begin filling in this gap in the otherwise quite impressive paling of Thoreau scholarship by presenting reasonably accurate and complete reconstructions of Thoreau's early "Life without Principle" lectures, "What Shall It Profit?" and "Life Misspent," based upon five principal sources of evidence: the extant manuscripts, the definitive text of the essay (Reform Papers, ed. Wendell Glick [Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1973], pp. 155-179), Thoreau's journals, the master and secondary indexes that Thoreau used to compile and arrange citations keyed to passages in his journals that he considered including in "What Shall It Profit?" and the contemporary newspaper summaries of the lectures. In my "Historical Intro-duction," I outline the history of Thoreau's deliveries of these lectures and gloss the stages of his composition process as reflected in the extant manuscripts. I recount the development and use of my textual approach to the five principal sources of evidence in my "Textual Introduction"; and appended to this, I explicate my presentation of the facsimile transcriptions of the extant manuscripts, the transcriptions of the manuscripts that have been mistakenly attributed to the essay, and the transcrip-tions of the newspaper summaries. Finally, I include a "Supple-ment" to the definitive edition of the essay in the final appendix. Interested scholars will find that all that is required to follow or recreate my reconstruction processes is a copy of the essay--preferably the definitive text--and a copy of Thoreau's journals. The other three sources of evidence--the manuscripts, the indexes, and the newspaper summaries--have been transcribed and are provided in the appendices"--Document

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Thoreau's writings on nature, liberty, justice, and solitude are infused with spirituality, as was his quest to live an honourable life. He addressed these matters in letters to Harrison Blake, an ex-Unitarian minister who initiated their 13-year correspondence in 1848. Thoreau, with his attentiveness to nature and deep study of both Eastern and Western religious traditions, mused on work, contemplation, and responsibility. 2004
