Edited by Sandra H. Petrulionis. Part of the "Writers in Their Own Time" series.
More than any other Transcendentalist of his time, Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) embodied the full complement of the movement's ideals and vocations: author, advocate for self-reform, stern critic of society, abolitionist, philosopher, and naturalist. The Thoreau of our time - valorized anarchist, founding environmentalist, and fervid advocate of civil disobedience - did not exist in the nineteenth century. In this rich and appealing collection, Sandra Harbert Petrulionis untangles Thoreau's multiple identities by offering a wide range of nineteenth-century comment. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin 286, Summer 2014, p. 5.
Published March, 2012. Paper Back, 6 x 9 inch format, 239 pp.
