Quick Overview

Maple Walden

Thoreau was born in Concord, Massachusetts, on July 12, 1817, and attended Concord Academy and Harvard. After a short time spent as a teacher, he worked as a surveyor and a handyman, sometimes employed by Ralph Waldo Emerson, his friend and mentor. Between 1845 and 1847 Thoreau lived in a cabin he had built himself on Emerson's property near to Walden Pond. He moved in on july 4,1845-his own personal Independence Day.

Thoreau called the move an experiment, to test the transcendenntalist idea that divinity was present in nature and the human soul. In orde to get closer to nature, he stripped his life down to the barest of essentials. He grew his own beans, wore only the simplest of clothes, and generally tried to seclude himself from the rapidly industralized world growing up around him.

Thomas Blanding, who has studied and restored Thoreau's journals, says that the effort to remove himself from civilization was essential to his larger question. "He wanted to find out just what was life-- what is absolutely necessary in life and what is superfluous."
