Ten years in the writing it was the book he retired to Walden to work on and incorporating essays, passages from his journal, and some of his best poems, it is a superbly crafted achievement, its texture enriched by the idealism of the Transcendentalists, the delighted wordplay of an imaginative linguist, the individualism of a young America, and the earthiness of a lover of nature. Its witty and pointed rhetoric brings together language and nature, the human and nonhuman in unusual conjunctions that resonate with symbolic meanings. A manual of self-reliance as well as a masterpiece of style, it is one of the most fervently loved classics of American literature.

Thoreau even equates fossils with poems and, in doing so, intimates that the powers of the poet and geologist—the people who peruse these materials—are deeply connected in the act of reading. Many in this camp maintain that A Week appeals to natural history but that its interest in science is superficial and merely literary. A second group of critics, including William Rossi, Laura Dassow Walls, and James Guthrie, not only calls attention to these fruitful intersections between literary and scientific discourses but demonstrates that the rhetoric of geology offered an important framework for A Week. More importantly, concentrating on Principles encourages scholars to think of A Week as a mere literary reimagining of a scientific text. Approaching the book in this way establishes a one-sided interaction between literature and science.
A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers is both a remembrance of an intensely spiritual moment in Henry David Thoreaus life and a memoriam to his.

Фотография внезапно обрела резкость, но он понимал, что увиденное слишком невероятно. Один шанс к миллиону. У меня галлюцинация.
Теперь, подумала Сьюзан, все встало на свои места. Танкадо хотел, чтобы Стратмор отследил и прочитал его электронную почту. Он создал для себя воображаемый страховой полис, не доверив свой ключ ни единой душе. Конечно, чтобы придать своему плану правдоподобность, Танкадо использовал тайный адрес… тайный ровно в той мере, чтобы никто не заподозрил обмана. Он сам был своим партнером.
