Storyboard Text

  • Evidence of transcendentalist thought: In the beginning of chapter 11, Thoreau shows evidence of transcendentalist though through his actions and how he feels. He states that he wants to hunt and eat meat other than fish so bad, but he cannot because it is his belief that everything is equal and he does not want to kill the wood chuck that he sees because this would make him feel as if he is more powerful. Despite fishing because we all have to eat and Thoreau thinks that fishing is the best way to do so, if your a transcendentalist like him.
  • Evidence of transcendentalist thought: Towards the end of chapter 11, Thoreau says that goodness is the investment that never fails. Looking through the transcendentalist vision, what this means to me is that Thoreau is trying to say that goodness or happiness cannot be taken away from you, unless you let it. He also says that no matter what your "appetite" is as a person, if your happy than that is all that matters.
  • Chapter 11 in Walden relates to me in a few ways. I also feel that people who get into habits such as hunting for fun or that hunt to much in general are not treating animals with respect, especially when we over power them with technology such as guns. I also believe that every one should be happy for who they are, since we are all unique and there is no normal. We should celebrate differences, not frown upon them. KEY TERM: Factitious: Fake This vocab word relates to the chapter because Thoreau mentions that water is the drink for the wise and wine is not so noble a liquor. I think that Thoreau means that you do not need alcohol to feel better. It makes a "fake" you.
