    Not surprisingly, less than three weeks after Walden book book's publication, Thoreau's mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson proclaimed, "All American kind are delighted with Walden as far as they have dared to say. Even when they publish non-fiction books, they generally are not considered scholarly, because their audience is the general public. Released the next day, Thoreau returns to Walden. While valuing freedom from possessions, Thoreau was not communal in the sense of practicing sharing or of embracing community.

    They would have to Walden book passed through a powerful press first, to squeeze their old notions out of them, so that they would not soon get upon their legs again; and then there would be some one in the company with a maggot in his head, hatched from an egg deposited there nobody knows when, for not even fire Walden book these things, and you would have lost your labor. The very simplicity and nakedness of man's life in the primitive ages imply this advantage, at least, that they left him still but a sojourner in nature. Near the end of March,I borrowed an axe and went down to the woods by Walden Pond, nearest to where I intended to build my house, and began to cut down some tall, arrowy white pines, still in their youth, for timber. When I called to see it he was not at home. It is true, the encumbrances sometimes outweigh the value of the farm, so that the farm itself becomes one great encumbrance, and still a man is found to inherit it, being well acquainted with it, as he says.
