Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

HENRY DAVID THOREAU is famous for the literary excellence of his political and nature writings. But his friend Harrison Blake understood that the true significance of [Thoreau's] life was in fact spiritual, and he presciently asked the then-little-known Thoreau for guidance in finding a path of his own. The result was a regular exchange of letters for the remaining thirteen years of Thoreau's life, charting the evolution of his skills as a writer and thinker. The possibilities and limits of spirituality, the role of vocation in developing one's spiritual life, the importance of a direct relationship between the individual and God--Thoreau discusses these and more in his letters to Blake. The fifty letters, assembled and annotated here for the first time in their own volume by Bradley P. Dean--who has made the editing of Thoreau's manuscripts his life's work--are by turns earnest, oracular, witty, playful, practical, and deeply insightful and inspiring.

Synopsis:

The possibilities and limits of spirituality, the role of vocation in developing one's spiritual life, the importance of a direct relationship between the individual and God--Thoreau discusses these and more in these 50 letters to Harrison Blake.
