By Henry David Thoreau, Thierry Gillyboeuf. 2012
Diplômé de Harvard à l'âge de vingt ans, Henry David Thoreau renonce à enseigner dans l'école publique de Concord, sa… ville natale du Massachusetts. Pour gagner sa vie, il choisit le métier de géomètre, mais l'essentiel est ailleurs : dans la nature et dans la poésie. Son oncle l'a initié très jeune aux promenades dans la campagne et les bois qui entourent la ville. Avec son frère John, il décide à la fin de l'été 1840 de fabriquer un canoë et de faire un périple de sept jours sur la rivière Concord et le fleuve Merrimack. Lorsqu'il perd son frère en 1842, il entreprend d'exorciser sa douleur et son chagrin par l'écriture. En racontant leur expédition tranquille, il livre ses réflexions sur la littérature et la philosophie, sur les Indiens et l'histoire puritaine de la Nouvelle-Angleterre, sur les grands textes sacrés. Voyage intérieur autant qu'excursion fluviale, ce tout premier récit, inédit jusqu'ici en français, porte en germe ce qui fera la particularité de son livre le plus fameux, Walden. Grâce à lui, l'écrivain Thoreau a trouvé sa voix. 2012.
