Walden



Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an American author who was born in Concord Massachusetts. He attended Harvard University, and upon graduation became a teacher and tutor. In 1841 he moved into the home of famous American writer Ralph Waldo Emerson. Over the following two years he became acquainted with other prominent figures of American Literature during that time. It was after his first stay at the home of Ralph Waldo Emerson, that Henry David Thoreau moved into a rough cabin on the shore of Walden Pond, which is located near his home town of Concord. Over the four years that he lived at Walden Pond, he earned money through small local handyman jobs. His spare time was consumed with the study of nature, and the woods around Walden Pond.

Following the four years in the woods on Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau again lived with Ralph Waldo Emerson for a brief time until finally moving in with his sister and parents in 1849. It was at this time that Henry David Thoreau wrote A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers which is one of his masterpiece novels. The story is a memoir of a trip he took on the Concord River and Merrimack River in 1839. Using his unique way of nature and wilderness observation, he was able to express his personality through these observations in A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. In his next masterpiece Walden, or Life in The Woods, he reflects on his time and studies at Walden Pond.
