            The Correspondence of Henry D. Thoreau: Volume 2: 1849-1856
             

            The Correspondence of Henry D. Thoreau: Volume 2: 1849-1856 (EPUB ebook)

            By Thoreau, Henry David; Edited by Hudspeth, Robert N.

            This is the second volume in the first full-scale scholarly edition of Thoreau's correspondence in more than half a century. When completed, the edition's three volumes will include every extant letter written or received by Thoreau-in all, almost 650 letters, roughly 150 more th...an in any previous edition, including dozens that have never before been published.Correspondence 2 contains 246 letters, 124 written by Thoreau and 122 written to him. Sixty-three are collected here for the first time; of these, forty-three have never before been published. During the period covered by this volume, Thoreau wrote the works that form the foundation of his modern reputation. A number of letters reveal the circumstances surrounding the publication of A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers in May 1849 and Walden in August 1854, as well as the essays "Resistance to Civil Government" (1849; now known as "Civil Disobedience") and "Slavery in Massachusetts" (1854), and two series, "An Excursion to Canada" (1853) and "Cape Cod" (1855). Writing and lecturing brought Thoreau a small group of devoted fans, most notably Daniel Ricketson, an independently wealthy Quaker and abolitionist who became a faithful correspondent. The most significant body of letters in the volume are those Thoreau wrote to Harrison Gray Otis Blake, a friend and disciple who elicited intense and complex discussions of the philosophical, ethical, and moral issues Thoreau explored throughout his life.Following every letter, annotations identify correspondents, individuals mentioned, and books quoted, and describe events to which the letters refer. A historical introduction characterizes the letters and connects them with the events of Thoreau's life, a textual introduction lays out the editorial principles and procedures followed, and a general introduction discusses the history of the publication of Thoreau's correspondence. Proper names, publications, events, and ideas found in both the letters and the annota

            The title, Swimming From the Ocean's Floor, is symbolic. The ocean's floor is the bottom of the bottom. It is the darkest place to be. By swimming from the floor of the ocean, you will encounter tides and currents which may be described as your own emotions and experiences. As yo...u get closer to the top the ocean, the color of the water gets lighter and lighter as does the fight to survive. The swim from the floor of the ocean may represent struggles with mental controversy, physical challenges, and life's confrontations with relationships, friendships, health, and finances.
