Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.
In Wildness is the preservation of the world.
Surely joy is the condition of life.
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.

More Day to Dawn: Thoreau's Walden for the Twenty-First Century - Sandra Harbert Petrulionis, Laura Dassow Walls, eds.
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 these 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. Contents:
Walden: climbing the canon / Robert Sattelmeyer ; Lakes of light: modes of representation in Walden / H. Daniel Peck ; Thoreau and idealism: face to face to a fact / David M. Robinson ;
The cimeter's "sweet" edge: Thoreau, contemplation, and violence / Larry J. Reynolds ; Following Thoreau's instincts / William Rossi ; Thoreau's materialism: from Walden to Wild fruits / Lance Newman ; Thoreau, Homer, and community / Robert Oscar López ; And what became of your philosophy then?: women reading Walden / Sarah Ann Wider ; Walden and the Georgic mode / Michael G. Ziser ; Thoreau's divide: rediscovering the environmentalist/agriculturalist debate in Walden's "Baker Farm" / Robert Cummings ; Leaving Walden / Dana Phillips. This book was reviewed in
