KIRKUS REVIEW

Not as stimulating nor provocative an introduction as usually gives a send-off to another ""Portable"". Adequate but rather stereotyped biographical survey, of a Thoreau waging perpetual war for the right to his privacy, finding human relations always a strain, unless there was no mental competition, of the various steps by which the groundwork was laid for Thoreau as Transcendentalist, Abolitionist. Broad gauged coverage of the best of his work, including prose, poetry and letters.
