About this product
- DescriptionAt his death, Henry Thoreau left the majority of his writing unpublished. The bulk of this material is a journal that he kept for twenty-four years. Sharon Cameron's major claim is that this private work (the<i> Journal</i>) was Thoreau's primary work, taking precedence over the books that he published in his lifetime. Her controversial thesis views Thoreau's <i>Journal </i>as a composition that confounds the distinction between public and private the basis on which our conventional treatment of discourse depends.
- Author Biography<b>Sharon Cameron</b> is the William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of English at the Johns Hopkins University. She is the author of <i>Lyric Time: Dickinson and the Limits of Genre</i> and <i>The Corporeal Self: Allegories of the Body in Hawthorne and Melville</i>.
