In this story Thoreau is talking on how he transcended from a normal life to a life completely with nature. He almost gained nostalgia for nature because thats where true life was. He wanted to live by the exemplary model or the "spartan like" model meaning he was low maintenance yet adroit person. His ideas protrude from normal writers because he wrote in a completely different place in nature. The placid environment gave him a lurid picture of life. He talks how people misconstrue the true meaning of life. He also acts as if there is some itinerary to living life through the world. I feel he is a very clairvoyant writer because of the way he described things.
