The
Thoreau Society

Founded in 1941

Thoreau

Biographical essay by Ralph Waldo Emerson
,
Atlantic Monthly, August 1862
— Emerson's Thoreau in
two parts:

Part 1


Part 2
Emerson
was a major influence and mentor for Thoreau; it was Emerson who loaned
Henry a pond side property for the two year experiment that resulted in
Walden
. But as Thoreau grew, Emerson appears to not to have fully
appreciated what was happening. He writes that "I cannot help counting it a
fault in him that he had no ambition." — apparently missing completely the
enormity and originality of Thoreau's ambitions.
