Abstract

The article examinesThoreau's complex attitudes towards nature, which paved the way for later environmentally-aware literature in the United States. In confronting animals, plants, and landscapes, Thoreau's stance is both scientific and poetic, staging a two-way dialogue that refuses postures of domination and underlines an unerasable interconnectedness. This is what makes him an ancestor to contemporary ecological thinking.
