by Henry David Thoreau

Where I Live and What I Lived For is a collection of essays by the 19th century philosopher Henry David Thoreau extracted from the book of essays Walden and Civil Disobedience.

In Economy

Thoreau suggests simple living and despised excessive glamour of life. He stressed out that the mere necessity of man is "heat" and that Food, Shelter and Clothing are needs to provide and or keep the heat our body needs.

For an essay, it is rather lengthy and tedious. I think it is not enough to put up the thought of a philosopher on Economics by a single, not even by great length, essay.

★★

In Where I Lived, and What I Lived For

Here, Thoreau wrote how he chose the land he build his solitary house, how he build the house, and how he was glad he build it. According to him he spent roughly $28 in building it (excluding the timber- which he cut from the forest). Considering such amount, comparing of it today, www.measuringworth.com gave the value range for today from $580.00 to $115,000.00. I doubt that it practically goes over to $1,000 but I am not an economist or a banker so I also doubt my judgement.



★★

In Winter Animals

In Winter Animals, Thoreau was gladdened to relate the activity of the animals around his abode. Probably he tried to encourage his readers that life in the country and living simple is a capital thing. I find this amusing and inspirational. That's all.

★★★

Note: My average ratings in the three different essays should yield 2 and 1/3. However, I cannot give such rating here in Goodreads. But the binding was pretty cool and scholarly awesome, so in that respect I shall rather give 3 overall rating than 2.
