Description
This compelling edition offers an in-depth examination of the environment as presented in Henry David Thoreau's novel Walden, as well as contemporary perspectives on this issue. Discussions include the author's language as a bond between humans and nature, Thoreau's methodology as a guide for today's environmentalists, the distortion of Thoreau's message over time, and environmentalism as the new religion of urban atheists.
