One of the most influential and compelling books in American literature, Walden is a vivid account of the years that Henry D. Thoreau spent alone in a secluded cabin at Walden Pond. This edition--introduced by noted American writer John Updike--celebrates the perennial importance of a classic work, originally published in 1854. Much of Waldens material is derived from Thoreaus journals and contains such engaging pieces from the lively Where I Lived, and What I Lived For and Brute Neighbors to the serene Reading and The Pond in the Winter. Other famous sections involve Thoreaus visits with a Canadian woodcutter and with an Irish family, a trip to Concord, and a description of his bean field. This is the complete and authoritative text of Walden--as close to Thoreaus original intention as all available evidence allows.

This is the authoritative text of Walden and the ideal presentation of Thoreaus great document of social criticism and dissent.
