Why I Went to the Woods is a piece of writing that is many a times the view of modern day Americans engulfed in the constant cycle of the technology takeover. Thoreau went to the woods to live and live deliberately. Living deliberately entails living consciously and intentionally. Thoreau’s intent was to live without regret of not living enough. In today’s society the focus is on living through others with a constant need for validation.
Aparajito-the Unvanquished: A Study from Ecocritical Praxis By Sandip Kumar Mishra Research Scholar KIIT University Abstract: The novel Aparajito- the Unvanquished is a sequel to Pather Panchali-the Song of the Road. In the first novel, the novelist ends with a ray of hope for the better future. Aparajito carries forward this positive mood to sing the glory of life in close intimacy with nature. The village boy of physical environment in Pather Panchal is now in the urban environment in Aparajito. There certainly is a constant clash between nature and culture; between the country and the city life.
Downing was a mid 19th century author who wrote best selling books about rural life. Marketed to those cramped in developing cities, Downing’s work spread pastoral ideals of small town living. His works included sketches of modest cottages surrounded by greenery and space. This work would have surely resonated with the urban middle and upper class, who had the means to commute and live this idealistic lifestyle, and it would have tugged at the heartstrings of the working class, who were stuck in the cities. These facets of inspiration directed how Olmsted thought individual ought to interact with parks and open spaces.
Frost, like the old pastoralists, emphasizes the uniqueness of this rural world. It is an agrarian society isolated within an urbanized world, and its country folks are separated from the modern public by a gulf of social, cultural and economic disparities. In Frost’s pastorals, regionalism provides means for creating the effect of remoteness. He sets his rural world apart by stressing its distinctly local traits and portraying Yankee life style different from that in the cosmopolitan urban society. Frost’s method as pastoral poet is nicely illustrated by one of his most familiar lyrics, The Pasture.
3). By living on Walden Pond, Thoreau was able to become the type of person he wanted to be, and through his writing of his experience and ideas, he was able to influence future generations as well. Similar to Walden, freedom, and selfhood are explored in my Learner Choice novel, Red Rising. As in Walden, strong imagery is used to create a world that completely and totally immerses the reader. Man’s need for freedom is explored by means of a secret organization combined with a rebellion against a system engineered to keep people in their rigid places in society.

This outlined in the poem “Lyrical Ballads”, by not only creating a “myth of memory” but, by the necessary need for a familiar community (Thomson). In the poem “Tintern Abbey” the author expresses “Tintern Abbey” is Wordsworth’s experiment to consider how he himself copes with the loss of innocence and with the disappointment of the insufficiency of any “recompense” (Thomson). Wordsworth goes through a terrible loss and tries to use “Tintern Abbey” as a way of coping with the pain. Asides from nature bringing the speaker in the poem pain it also brought him joy. In the poem it cites that he feels a presence of joy of elevation (wordsworth 37).
From reading Robert Frost 's poems, I agree that his simple style is deceptive and a thoughtful reader will see layers of meaning. Robert Frost was one of the great poets of the twentieth century, but his work differs from theirs in certain important aspects. He built up a persona of himself as a plain man living in rural New England, a man for whom the hard work of farming was a source of real inspiration. Frost had quite an individualistic style in comparison to any other poet, his poetry is written in the everyday, vernacular colloquial language in order to bring across the message he wants his audience to receive. What he succeeded in creating was a poetry that fused everyday speech with formal poetic techniques.
