Reflecting Heaven: Thoreau on Water (Spirit of Thoreau) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Henry David Thoreau's large body of work, only three books were published during his lifetime. In fact much of his greatest work was left behind in his journals and other manuscripts. Drawing on these writings, the editors of the Thoreau Society have distilled books that are as close as possible in spirit to those Thoreau might have seen through to publication had he lived long enough. These are, in essence, new books by perhaps the most original writer and thinker in American history.

Thoreau's most famous book is named for a body of water, and he had an almost mystical fascination with water, writing in his journal, "Water indeed reflects heaven because my mind does — such is its own serenity — its transparency — & stillness".

Synopsis:

The Spirit of Thoreau series is a fresh new collection of Thoreau's best writing and thinking on various themes, drawn from both unpublished and published sources.

THOREAU ON WATER REFLECTING HEAVEN Edited by Robert France

Thoreau's most famous book is named for a pond, and he had an almost mystical fascination with water. As he wrote in his journal, "Water indeed reflects heaven because my mind does — such is its own serenity — its transparency — & stillness." THOREAU ON WATER brings together his finest writing on one of his greatest passions.
