In recognition of The Thoreau Society Jubilee celebration, preeminent scholars from around the United States gathered in Worcester and Concord, Massachusetts, in the summer of 1991 to commemorate Henry David Thoreau's contribution to literature, to conservation, and to contemporary thought. This volume is the resulting compendium of papers, a diverse collection that represents the best work of the foremost thinkers in Thoreauvian studies. It celebrates the man, his work, his philosophy, and the place -- Walden -- that inspired it all. More than scholarly investigation, these papers serve as fitting tribute to a man whose diverse interests had such immense impact on world culture. -- From publisher's description.
