Analysis and comments on The Moon by Henry David Thoreau

Comment 8 of 8, added on August 9th, 2012 at 9:59 PM.

It seems the book can deliver a viasul and mental impact while we are
approaching the Tang Poems. This reminds of the English translation of the
Persian Poem by Edward Fitzgerald: The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayam. Ancient
Oriental wisdom can shine through ages after ages from the East to the West
in beautiful English too if the right format of expressing can be achieved.

in this poem Thoreau describes the moon as a beacon that God has placed for
him to see where the path of life is leading him. He conveys that even if
he travels down the wrong path the moon is still there to lead him back.

Its a great poem thoreau is romantic and loves nature. This is not a poem
where you have to decipher what it is about. It is about how he
appreciates the moon and loves everything in nature.
