    Feeling strongly enough about something like apples to write an entire essay about them boggles my mind This was delightful, though Some Favorite Quotes There is thus about all natural products a certain volatile and ethereal quality which represents their highest value, and which cannot be vulgarized, or bought and sold.Nay, they spring up wild and bear well there in the midst of pines, birches, maples, and oaks I am often surprised to see rising amid these tr

    This very short work by Thoreau is sheer poetry to read He explores the role of wild apples within history and culture, often citing the classics It s highly readable so than many 19th century works and a pure sensory delight Honestly, it made me hungry for apples The out door air and exercise which the walker gets give a different tone to his palate, and he craves a fruit which the sedentary would call harsh and crabbed They must be eaten in the fields, when your sy

    This Kindle edition handles footnotes in an odd way, no doubt due to the digitization of the work It s readable and acceptable once one realizes what is happening.Now, about the apples Strange to say, this short ish work IS, in fact, all about apples and apple trees It comes to mind after only a few pages that it s enough already about apples cultivated, wild, or crab Is there really that much to say Thoreau s answer Yes, and then some I find that in reality the work is about the man not the fru

    Uno de los mayores m ritos de este peque o ensayo sobre y a favor de las manzanas es no haber nombrado a John Chapman en el abanico de referencias que pululan por sus p ginas Y eso que los dos eran de Massachussets A pesar de lo anterior, una escritura pasional, sincera ha conseguido que lea sobre un tema del que jam s creer a que leer a m s de un p rrafo Y ahora, el muy canalla de Henry David ha conseguido que quiera beberme un vaso de sidra.

    Thoreau is not going to fascinate or please everyone, but this is an elegant and thoughtful reflection on a fruit, the apple, that is much deeper than the title may imply It also shows that Thoreau on some level understood the natural order as transcendent.
