Places Thoreau's views of death and dying at the center of his work, contending that it is crucial to consider the specific historical and regional contexts in which he lived -- nineteenth-century New England -- to fully appreciate his perspectives. Suggests that throughout his writings, Thoreau communicated that knowing how to die properly is an art and a lifelong study, a perspective that informed his ideas about politics, nature, and individualism. Opens a dialogue that will engage both Thoreauvians and those interested in American literature and thought. This book is reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin #302, Summer 2018, pp. 14-15.
University of Massachusetts Press, 2017. Paperback, 156 pp, 6 x 9 inch format.
