WALDEN by Henry David Thoreau is an engrossing account of self discovery, human development, social experiments and is also a guide for self reliance. Summary Of The Book WALDEN by Henry David Thoreau is a gripping account of personal independence and details more than two years of the author’s experiences living in a cabin near Walden Pond. The book uses the four seasons as themes to represent the development and spiritual discovery. Inspired heavily by transcendental philosophy, WALDEN contains various insightful chapters like Reading, Economy, Where I Lived, and What I Lived For, Visitors, Sounds, Solitude, Baker Farm, The Village, The Ponds, The Bean-Field, Higher Laws, House-Warming, Brute Neighbors, The Pond in Winter, Winter Animals, Spring, Former Inhabitants and Winter Visitors and a Conclusion. WALDEN details the rich benefits obtained by the soul on account of a humble lifestyle. Thoreau was allowed to build a cabin and maintain a garden by his close friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, and would earn his keep by performing various chores around the woodland. The book is an attempt to delink intellectual and moral superiority from poverty. Some other areas covered in the book include classical literature and its benefits, support for philosophers and wise individuals, recollections of the author’s former places of residence and human existence free from social and societal obligations. Thoreau also places particular importance on the wonderfulness of human solitude and loneliness. Societal escape is seen as pleasurable amidst nature and all its benefits. WALDEN could sell only two thousand copies in five years, but the book came to be regarded as a classic later on. The book is now one of the most acclaimed and celebrated literary works in America. The book has remained popular owing to its promise of a better life for the reader.

Walden is a book by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau. The text is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau used this time to write his first book, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. The experience later inspired Walden, in which Thoreau compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development. By immersing himself in nature, Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Simple living and self-sufficiency were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by transcendentalist philosophy, a central theme of the American Romantic Period.
