The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau is widely considered one of the most important persons in the history of American letters in addition to an international reputation as a naturalist, philosopher, and author. This particular website serves as both a source of information about the authorized Thoreau Edition of his complete works (which was founded in 1966) and the Thoreau Project, which is located at Northern Illinois University, and which is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities. On the site, visitors can learn about the life and times of Thoreau, read a series of reflections on his book, Walden, and learn about future volumes in the Thoreau Edition. The section dedicated to Thoreau's various writings is quite delightful, as visitors can view original samples of his handwriting, peruse selections from his celebrated journal (which he kept from 1837 to 1861), and view a complete list of his letters, which he composed from 1835 to 1862.
