Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862[1]) was an American author, poet, naturalist, researcher, historian, philosopher, and transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection on the simple life surrounded by nature, and for his essay Civil Disobedience.

Thoreau's books, articles, essays, journals, and poetry amount to more than 20 volumes. Among his lasting contributions are his writings on natural history and philosophy, in which he anticipated the methods and findings of ecology and environmental history, two sources of modern-day environmentalism. His literary style interweaves close observation of nature, personal experience, pointed rhetoric, symbolic meanings, and historical lore, while displaying a poetic sensibility, philosophical austerity, and attention to practical detail.[5] He was also deeply interested in the idea of survival in the face of hostile elements, historical change, and natural decay; at the same time he advocated abandoning waste and illusion in order to discover life's true essential needs.
