あらすじ・解説

At Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau reflected on simpler living in the natural world. By removing himself from the distractions of materialism, Thoreau hoped to not only improve his spiritual life but also gain a better understanding of society through solitary introspection.

In Walden, Thoreau condenses his two-year, two-month, two-day stay into a single year, using the four seasons to symbolize human development - a cycle of life shared by both nature and man. A celebration of personal renewal through self-reliance, independence, and simplicity, composed for all of us living in “quiet desperation,” Walden is eternal.

Revised edition: Previously published as Walden, this edition of Walden (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Thoreau makes much ado about literally nothing

I didn't dislike this book despite what my title implies. But you should know ahead of time that he's spends a 2 years (?) alone at a pond and wrote a book about his musings. He spends lots of time doing nothing and so spends a great deal of time talking about the nothing he is doing. (hopefully that explains my title).

I found that his mind wandered much the same as mine when I camp for extended periods of time. And therefore could relate to him, and enjoyed his putting my feelings into much more eloquent words than I ever could.

If you aren't interested in poetic and philosophical musings, you aren't going to be interested in this book.

This is a Memoir

This is not a book to read if you are looking for a thrilling story line. But his writing is very descriptive and poet. He has good opinions that present an opportunity for discussion and self reflection. This is a good book to review when you are learning about writing styles.

Nature described at it's best

I liked this story of living by a pond. Written so long ago. Now of course there are hardly any birds compared to then

As already known... a classic

What wonderful insights and while written almost 170 years ago Thoreau could have easily have written it last week and the insights, thoughts, and invitations would be just as applicable.

Overated and long winded

I have like most of you heard the inumerable quotes which eminate from this book. From this uncertain basis I decided to listen to the book. Mr. Thoreau comes across as a rather spoiled psudo-intellectual in this tract. His driving concern seems mostly to stand on pillar and criticize the world around him.

His philosophy if it may be called that is a mix of rather adolescent antiestablishmentism and naturalism which is coloured by his rather sheltered and restrictive experience. It is akin to reading a 1800's Reddit post.

Most of his points worth noting are simply rememberences of the masters. His few original point are often betray his ignorance. A prime example of this is when he opines on economics. It is a lazy and ignorant analysis to say the least.

Still, I'd not say to not read this book to the end as the essay on civil disobedience is quite enjoyable and worthy of consideration.
