Walden by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau 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 First published in 1854 it 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 The book 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 As Thoreau made clear in his book his cabin was not in wilderness but at the edge of town about two miles 3 km from his family home
