Thoreau begins his three-part essay by referring to human's role in nature "as an inhabitant, or a part or parcel of Nature." He later criticizes members of society for their lack of such a relationship with nature. Furthermore, Thoreau also uses an experience from his own life to represent a personal account in nature, more specifically his experiences while walking into the forest near his property.
Serene & beautifully written55
Having never before read anything from Thoreau, I was very taken with the way he seemed to visualize his time. If man were to take all that he advised, maybe we all would be in tune with Nature more!45
