Summary
More than any other Transcendentalist of his time, Henry David Thoreau (1817 & ndash;1862) embodied the full complement of the movement & rsquo;s ideals and vocations: author, advocate for self-reform, stern critic of society, abolitionist, philosopher, and naturalist. The Thoreau of our time & mdash;valorized anarchist, founding environmentalist, and fervid advocate of civil disobedience & mdash;did not exist in the nineteenth century. In this rich and appealing collection, Sandra Harbert Petrulionis untangles Thoreau & rsquo;s multiple identities by offering a wide range of nineteenth-century comment
