Item description for Yankee Wisdom 2009 Wall Calendar by Henry David Thoreau & Emily Dickinson...

Yankees are proud of their resilience, toughness and dry humor. From their origins as seekers of freedom and a new life, New Englanders have represented pragmatism, tolerance, ingenuity and optimism. The enduring ocean and bedrock granite typify Yankee spirit and wisdom. The image of the Yankee is the image of America. A mix of contradictions, Yankees balance a love of freedom and individual liberty with a respect for their community. They are well-educated, yet rustic. The New England Transcendentalists adopted Eastern religious ideas well over 150 years ago. The Yankee Wisdom 2009 wall calendar features the thoughtful ponderings of Emerson, Dickinson and Thoreau mixed with the down-home humor and advice of The Old Farmer's Almanac. Photographs of the peaceful New England landscape bring to life and give context to the wisdom of the Yankee.

More About Henry David Thoreau & Emily Dickinson


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Henry David Thoreau (1817 1862) was born and lived the greater part of his life in Concord, Massachusetts. He studied at Harvard, where he became a disciple of Emerson, and after graduating in 1837 returned to Concord to teach school with his brother. In Concord, he became acquainted with the members of the Transcendentalist Club and grew especially close to Emerson, for whom he worked as a handyman. Thoreau also began to write for The Dial and other magazines, and in 1839 he made the boat trip that became the subject of his first book, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (1849). On July 4, 1845, he moved into the hut he d constructed on Walden Pond, where he remained until September 6, 1847 a sojourn that inspired his great work Walden, published in 1854. In the 1850s, Thoreau became increasingly active in the abolitionist cause, meeting John Brown at Emerson s house in 1857 and, after the attack on Harpers Ferry, writing passionately in Brown s defense. Short trips to Maine and Cape Cod resulted in two post humously published books (The Maine Woods and Cape Cod), and a visit to New York led to a meeting with Walt Whitman. Suffering from tuberculosis, Thoreau traveled to the Great Lakes for the sake of his health, but finding no improvement and realizing that he was going to die, returned home to Concord to put his papers in order and to write his final essays, drawing as always on the Journal, the work that was the source of all his other works and the defining undertaking of his adult life.

He has produced an experimental edition of Herman Melville s Moby-Dick, called; or The Whale, and his translation of the Dutch writer Nescio s stories is forthcoming from NYRB Classics.
