Oral Readings from Thoreau’s Lifelong Journal

Henry David Thoreau spent two years in a cabin by Walden Pond and a single night in jail, and out of those experiences grew two of America’s most influential works: his book Walden and the essay known as “Civil Disobedience.” Yet his lifelong journal reveals a fuller, more intimate picture of a man of wide-ranging interests and a profound commitment to living responsibly and passionately. Students can read and listen to Thoreau’s personal reflections on nature, friendship, slavery, and society in The Morgan Library & Museum’s online exhibition Thoreau’s Journal: A Life of Listening. The excerpts from Thoreau’s journal are read aloud by students in New York University’s 2015 and 2016 first-year seminar on Emerson and Thoreau.
