In the spring of 1845, Henry David Thoreau built a wooden hut on the shores of Walden Pond outside Concord, Massachusetts, intending to devote himself--for a time--to a simple life.

A sturdy individualist and a lover of nature, Henry David Thoreau was typical of his time and place--an epitome of the Yankee spirit. In March, 1845, he set out to live life in a new way. Borrowing an ax, he built himself a wooden hut on the edge of Walden Pond, near Concord, Massachussetts, where he lived until September, 1847. Walden is a record of that experiment in simple living.

Arguably America's most famous nonconformist, Thoreau lived at Walden Pond from July 1845 to September 1847, chronicling his experiences there. It was an experiment in living a life unhindered by social trappings and tradition. His work was not widely renowned for years after his death, but later became a staple in modern culture, defining not only what it means to be an American, but what it means to be human. Come see where the idea of marching to the beat of a different drummer originated. Walden is a classic and essential reading.

Concord era apenas una aldea de menos de cinco mil habitantes, en Nueva Inglaterra, cuando Henry David Thoreau decidió establecerse en el bosque junto a la laguna llamada Walden, construir una cabaña y vivir apartado del trato social. De sus notas surgió esta obra, mezcla de diario íntimo de aventurero, apunte de naturista y borrador de filósofo. Habitante del convulsionado siglo XIX norteamericano, Thoreau escribió en Walden, la vida en los bosques - 'La mayor parte de los hijos, o las llamadas comodidades de la vida, no son sólo innecesarios sino también impedimentos para la elevación de la humanidad'

Genre: Fiction

In Walden beschreibt Thoreau sein Leben in einer Blockhütte, die er sich 1845 in den Wäldern von Concord (Massachusetts) am See Walden Pond baute, um dort für mehr als zwei Jahre der industrialisierten Massengesellschaft der jungen USA den Rücken zu kehren. Nach eigener Aussage ging es ihm dabei jedoch nicht um eine naive Weltflucht, sondern um den Versuch, einen alternativen und ausgewogenen Lebensstil zu verwirklichen. Das 1854 veröffentlichte Buch kann nicht als Roman im eigentlichen Sinne angesehen werden, vielmehr ist es eine Zusammenfassung und Ausformung seiner Tagebucheinträge, die er in den symbolischen Zyklus eines Jahres integriert und zusammenfasst. Dabei ist sein Stil geprägt von hoher Flexibilität und Sprachkunst, die die Übertragung in andere Sprachen oft erschwert hat.
