Auteur: Harding, Walter
Titel: The Days of Henry Thoreau
Sub titel: A Biography
The biography of a complex American who, apart from writing "Walden" and "Civil Disobedience", was a naturalist, teacher, abolitionist, transcendentalist, anthropologist, inventor and social critic. Writing with lucidity, Harding has marshalled all the facts so as best to "let them speak for themselves". Thoreau's thoughtfulness and stubbornness, his more than ordinary human amalgam of the earthy and the sublime emerge to the reader.
