  • New Briefing: Midlife with Thoreau

    Read the latest briefing from UNH English Professor, Diane Freedman's new book, Midlife with Thoreau.  Published 110 years after Henry David Thoreau's Walden, it is a memoir in poetry, essays, and journals, a series of “excursions” (the term comes from Thoreau)--that is, walks through landscapes of association, beginning often with observed phenomenon and moving to its personal meaning for the author.
