Civil Disobedience & Other Essays
Henry David Thoreau
Philosopher, naturalist, poet & rugged individualist Thoreau has inspired generations of readers to think for themselves, to follow the dictates of their own conscience adn to make an art of their lives. This representative sampling of his thought includes five of his most frequently read and cited essays: "On the Duty of Civil Disobedience" exalts the law of conscience over civil law (1849), "Life without Principle" (1863) distills the essence of his philosophy of self-reliance and individualism, "Slavery in Massachusetts" (1854) is a searing attack on government condonation of slavery, "A Plea for Captain John Brown" (1869) is an eloquent defense of the radical abolitionist, and "Walking" (1862) celebrates that activity and pleads for conservation of the earth's wild places.
