Walden is one of the most frequently assigned texts in literature classes across the country, and it might seem that little new could be said about such a popular book. But thee essays demonstrate that scholarship on Thoreau continues to break new ground. Emerging new voices join senior scholars in exploring a range of topics: Walden's climb to fame; modes of representation in the text; the relationship between fact and truth: Thoreau and violence: Thoreau and evolutionary theory: the working community created by Thoreau's reading and labor; how women read Walden; and the relationship between politics, nature writing, and the science of ecology. The volume closes with an afterword suggesting directions for future research.
 
Essays included are authored by Robert Sattelmeyer, H. Daniel Peck, David M. Robinson, Larry Reynolds, William Rossi, Lance Newman, Robert Oscar Lopez, Sarah Ann Wider, Michael Ziser, Robert E. Cummings and Dana Phillips. Co Editor Sandra Harbert Pertulionis is Associate Professor of English at Pennsylvania State University, Altoona and Co-Editor Laura Dassow Walls is the John H Bennett Jr.Chair of Southern Letters at the University of South Carolina.
