Item Description

Meet via zoom for 40-minutes with author Audrey Raden and receive a signed copy of their book, "When I Came to Die: Process and Prophecy in Thoreau's Vision of Dying".


Places Thoreau's views of death and dying at the center of his work, contending that it is crucial to consider the specific historical and regional contexts in which he lived -- nineteenth-century New England -- to fully appreciate his perspectives. Suggests that throughout his writings, Thoreau communicated that knowing how to die properly is an art and a lifelong study, a perspective that informed his ideas about politics, nature, and individualism. Opens a dialogue that will engage both Thoreauvians and those interested in American literature and thought. This book is reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin #302, Summer 2018, pp. 14-15.
University of Massachusetts Press, 2017. Paperback, 156 pp, 6 x 9 inch format.
