Mott, Wesley T.
Thoreau's writings while at Walden are reflective of his farming experience. The objective of this IQP is to engage in research regarding the agricultural techniques utilized by Henry David Thoreau during his two-year stay at Walden Pond, examining "The Role of Agriculture in Nineteenth-Century American Literature." This was done through a combination of field and archival research, and showed how Thoreau's farming acumen affected the rhetorical design of his writing.
