You must examine the writing of Henry David Thoreau. You should thoroughly read Walden in preparation for this writing assignment. After you have read this account, you must choose one idea presented in Thoreau’s most famous writing. (How does this idea fit with the overall philosophy of Transcendentalism? Is the idea relevant today? Does the idea have practical value today? How is this idea different from the ideas of writers from earlier literary periods? Does this idea fit with any other theological or philosophical idea? What do other writers and thinkers of other periods believe about this particular idea? Is it expressed in other works—movies/films, songs, novels, poems, essays etc.?) Be specific and thoughtful in your writing. Use specific examples. You must completely examine the idea presented to Thoreau’s world of readers. You must then connect the idea to your own world and modern philosophy.
