Summary
In 1845 Thoreau built a shanty in the woods by Walden Pond, where he lived from 1845-1847, interrupted only by a day's imprisonment for refusal to pay a poll tax to a government that supported the Mexican War. This action was in accord with his belief in passive resistance, a means of protest he explained in his essay "Civil Disobedience" (1849). Walden is a treatise on the subjects of self-sufficiency, individualism, relationship with nature, and rejection of material ambition
