Walden: Life in the Woods


Originally published in 1854, Thoreau writes of his experiences living in a cabin for 2 years, 2 months, and 2 days. While in the cabin, he wrote A Week in the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. After the experience, he wrote Walden which condensed his experiences into a single year which allowed him to use the four seasons as a metaphor for human development.
