Walden, Version 2

Gelesen von Nick Bulka

(4,462 Sterne; 26 Bewertungen)

Walden (first published as Walden; or, Life in the Woods) is an American book written by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, it details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. The book compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development. - Summary by Wikipedia (11 hr 58 min)

Excellent

(5 Sterne)

Yes, the volume is a bit low, but Nick Bulka's recording of Walden appropriately captures the whimsical tone that I believe Thoreau intended. Definitely worth a listen.

Excellent Reading!
