H. D. Thoreau`s Nature Essays on Ecological Psychology (Based on English Essays)

Solomatina S.Y.


Henry David Thoreau - a writer, philosopher, and naturalist is considered to be the first nature writer. He reflects on what he has observed and draws out the interdependence inherent in the experience. The paper discusses Thoreau`s individual style - the leading stylistic devices, the slant of the narration and its mood. His nature essays summarize author's long-standing argument with himself: how is the writer to use science without becoming scientific; how is nature to be expressed accurately and yet poetically?
