Publisher Description

INTRODUCTION Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) has mostly been approached as a literary artist, a naturalist, a transcendentalist, whose scholarly interpretation runs like this: as a man celebrating natural beauty and transcendental individualism; as the initiator of the genre of nature writing; as a literary artist in the American Renaissance; the formal and stylistic studies of his individual texts and so on. Relatively speaking, Thoreau's social and political thoughts have received less critical attention. Nancy L. Rosenblum has mentioned this point, "Except for a surge of interest in the 1960s in Thoreau as a social critic and advocate of civil disobedience, cultural studies have eclipsed his political thought." (Rosenblum xiii)
