Description

Philosopher, spiritualist, social activist, and free spirit - Henry David Thoreau was one of the most significant thinkers of C19th America. Walden and On Civil Disobedience are two of Thoreau's most influential works and are presented here alongside each other on audiobook. In Walden, Thoreau urges us to renegotiate our relationship with society, to reject its inhibitive conventions and expectations and to reconnect with nature in order to live a more vital and purposeful life. On Civil Disobedience berates the 'machine' of C19th American government that sanctions evil policies such as slavery and argues that the public should refuse to cooperate by not paying taxes. Thoreau's expos of his society's misguided dogmas is uncompromising and is presented with startling clarity and conviction. Today, Thoreau's ideas are still as bold, refreshing and inspiring as they ever were and call on us to live a life less ordinary.
