NVCC Characterization Between the Spiritual and The Natural Discussion
I’m working on a literature writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
Read Walden up to chapter seven, “The Bean-Field,” and analyze the theme of nature. Thoreau writes, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” What does Thoreau discover in nature living by Walden Pond? How is nature a companion for Thoreau? How does he view nature that is in line with the transcendentalist philosophy?
