Ralph Waldo Emerson once described Henry Thoreaus poetry as the purest strain, and the loftiest, I think, that has yet pealed from this unpoetic American forest. Not always thus esteemed, Thoreaus verses were by no means ignored. Bronson AlcottMoreRalph Waldo Emerson once described Henry Thoreaus poetry as the purest strain, and the loftiest, I think, that has yet pealed from this unpoetic American forest. Not always thus esteemed, Thoreaus verses were by no means ignored.

Bronson Alcott applauded them- James Russell Lowell asserted their rawness- Nathaniel Hawthorne grudgingly approved them. As author of Walden and Civil Disobedience, Thoreau the writer of prose is world-renowned, but Thoreau the poet has been all but forgotten.This collection has all of Thoreaus original verse — the glowing lines and the quiet, the prosaic and the Transcendental. And all have at the very least the large, astringent force of young genius.Praise for Collected Poems of Henry ThoreauBode has placed lovers and students of New Englands most individualistic philosopher under a considerable debt.

— New York TimesIt is good to have Thoreaus poetry thus readily available once more in an edition that is both thoroughly annotated and includes all of the variants. — Thoreau Society BulletinThe admirer of Thoreau will gladly pay to own all of his poems, not because he believes that he gave more than a glimpse of his genius in verse, but for the sake of the insight they allow into his character and sensibility.
