Abstract

For Thoreau, penetrating landscape observation provided a point of departure for natural description, and violently paradoxical social commentary. His texts express, question, naturalize, and deploy many presuppositions about geographic order in the landscape. Because he was well informed about the science of his time and about Humboldt and Guyot in particular, and because his texts are rich literary contrivances, geographers may fruitful examine his work
