By Thoreau, Henry David
Edited by Cramer, Jeffrey S.

This new selection of Thoreau's essays traces his trajectory as a writer for the outlets of his day - the periodical press, newspapers, and compendiums - and as a frequent presenter on the local lecture circuit.

Jeffrey Cramer, award-winning editor of three previous volumes of works by Thoreau, offers the most accurate text available for each essay and provides convenient on-page annotations. He establishes context and guides the reader through unfamiliar allusions and references, plumbing the depths of Thoreau's writings with unprecedented insight. Among the essays in this book: The Last Days of John Brown; Resistance to Civil Government; Thomas Carlyle and His Works; Natural History of Massachusetts; and dozens more.
