Présentation de l'éditeur

On July 4, 1845, Henry David Thoreau began a two-year experiment living in a solitary, self-built hut on the edge of Walden Pond outside of Concord, Massachusetts. In Walden, Thoreau wrote, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” Walden is a detailed account of how and why Thoreau lived in relative seclusion, and his conclusions about living deliberately, and human nature.

I was so engrossed in this book. I knew of it's existence for many, many years, just never got around to reading it. Now that I live in New England, I found it fascinating and courageous. I'm looking forward to reading more of his works.

Thoreau is prophet, poet, visionary, mystic, curmudgeon, libertarian environmentalist. Gotta love him!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 They'll be calling you a radical, a liberal ... 31 octobre 2014
Par Harry - Publié sur Amazon.com

The author set off on a fascinating adventure, seeking himself and an understanding of the transitory nature of life, existence, everything. "I have lived some 30 years on this planet, and I have yet to hear the first syllable of valuable or even earnest advice from my seniors." All sounds a bit trippy for a piece written in the mid 19th century - certainly something that would resonate with a mid 20th century audience (I wanna die before I get old). And so Mr Thoreau "went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach ..."

The author must have been an amazing character for his time - "the greater part of what my neighbours call good I believe in my soul to be bad." He rediscovered the hard core radicalism of the levellers and diggers of the English Commonwealth period, albeit with Mr Thoreau pursuing his ideals through the lens of eastern mysticism rather than the Puritanism of his philosophical forebears. Perhaps he had some regard for those English revolutionaries, noting that "as for England, almost the last significant scrap of news from that quarter was the revolution of 1649." And his thoughts must have been total anathema to the hairy-chested capitalism of the USA - "Most of the luxuries and any of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of life ... our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things ... a man is rich in proportion to the number of things which he can afford to let alone."

Wonderful philosophy, but at times these "serious things" become a little overwhelming and Thoreau descends into turgid over/ micro-analysis of his existence in his cabin in the woods, to the point that "the very globe continually transcends and translates itself, and becomes winged in its orbit." Huh?

At another level, he does write beautifully of his simple life, a sensitive soul for whom "every little pine needle expanded and swelled with sympathy and befriended me", while being "conscious of an animal in us ... reptile and sensual." And in the woods, we witness "a very slight and graceful hawk, alternately soaring like a ripple and tumbling a rod or two over and over" and "a rare mess of golden and silver and bright cupreous fishes which looked like a string of jewels."

The jury is still out, I'll probably need another read to decide whether this is a classic in the philosophy canon or just an early rude primer in counter-culture.

Thoreau's Sister: "Ahoy, Captain neck-beard! We've brought the provisions you requested. Permission to come aboard?"

Thoreau: "Knock it off, sis, and gimme those sandwiches - that self-reliance bit I'm always harping about like a neck-beard is tougher than it looks to pull off."
