An updated edition of Thoreau's most widely read works Self-described as "a mystic, a transcendentalist, and a natural philosopher to boot," Henry David Thoreau dedicated his life to preserving his freedom as a man and as an artist. Nature was the fountainhead of his inspiration and his refuge from what he considered the follies of society. Heedless of his friends' advice to live in a more orthodox manner, he determinedly pursued his own inner bent-that of a poet-philosopher-in prose and verse. Edited by noted Thoreau scholar Jeffrey S. Cramer, this edition promises to be the new standard for those interested in discovering the great thinker's influential ideas about everything from environmentalism to limited government. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Henry David Thoreau baute sich im Jahr 1845 im Wald von Concord in Massachusetts eine Blockhütte. Thoreau lebte dort zwei Jahre, um eine Alternative zu dem hektischen und auf wirtschaftlichen Erfolg ausgerichteten Alltag auszuprobieren. Der Grund: Er wollte das Leben wieder im Einklang mit der Natur ganz bewusst spüren. Der minimalistische Lebensstil sollte Raum und Zeit für das Wesentliche schaffen. Über seine Empfindungen und Erfahrungen führte Thoreau in der Zeit im Wald Tagebuch. Aus seinen Aufzeichnungen entstand dieses Buch. Es beschäftigt sich mit seinen alltäglichen Problemen, mit wirtschaftlichen und philosophischen Überlegungen, mit dem Gefühl der Einsamkeit, mit den Tieren des Waldes, mit den Jahreszeiten und mit der Lektüre klassischer Werke.
