Description


This is volume V of "The Writings of Henry David Thoreau". Entitled "Excursions, and Poems", it is primarily a collection of poetry and travelling accounts, although also included are a number of his translations. This book will appeal to all lovers of poetry and nature writing, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Thoreau's wonderful work. Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862) was an American poet, philosopher, essayist, abolitionist, naturalist, development critic, and historian. He was also a leading figure in Transcendentalism, and is best known for his book "Walden", a treatise on simple living in a natural environment. Other notable works by this author include: "The Landlord" (1843), "Reform and the Reformers" (1846-48), and "Slavery in Massachusetts" (1854). Contents include: "A Yankee In Canada", "Natural History Of Massachusetts", "A Walk To Wachusett", "The Landlord", "A Winter Walk The Succession Of Forest Trees", "Walking", "Autumnal Tints", "Nature", "Inspiration", "The Aurora Of Guido", "To The Maiden In The East", "To My Brother", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
