Abstract:

Disdainful of America's growing commercialism and industrialism, Henry David Thoreau left Concord, Massachusetts, in 1845 to live in solitude in the woods by Walden Pond. Walden: is the classic account of his stay there, conveys at once a naturalist's wonder at the commonplace and a Transcendentalist's yearning for spiritual truth and self-reliance. Civil disobedience: is an analysis of the individuals relationship to the state that focuses on why men obey governmental law even when they believe it to be unjust, expressing his antislavery and antiwar sentiments.
