Focuses on the egocentric and biocentric Thoreau -- ruminating on epistemological questions regarding how nature, human as well as environmental, can be understood, and on ensuing aesthetic ones concerning how to portray and promote one's findings. As Thoreau's hometown of Concord, Massachusetts, was transformed by new technology and infrastructure, the railroad and telegraph among them, he had increasingly to contend with a landscape hybridized by modern human culture -- a troubling insight, as this study contends, ultimately bearing also on Thoreau's own craft, on how its expanses and limits were conceived. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin #292, Winter 2016, on p. 8.
University of Gothenburg, 2014. Paperback, 272 pp.
