Product Description

Originally published in the October 1862 issue of the Atlantic Monthly, Thoreau's "Autumnal Tints" was written at a time when the bright-hued New England autumn had not "made a deep impression on our literature yet" and was "scarcely remembered by the majority from year to year." Perfectly capturing the facts and delight of the season, Thoreau notes the red maple as the first to turn in September, the Elms in October, the falling leaves in mid-late October-whilst recounting his raptures at the leaves at his feet after the rain, the still-bright colors seen on the Common as he writes, and the glory of each hue. 62 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

Two institutions of New England, our fall colors and Henry David Thoreau, are brought together in this posthumously published rumination on Nature. Autumnal Tints was originally published in the October 1862 Atlantic Monthly. "October is the month for painted leaves. Their rich glow now flashes round the world. As fruits and leaves and the day itself acquire a bright tint just before they fall, so the year near its setting. October is its sunset sky; November the later twilight."
