Because of that my childhood was even more interesting than most children’s.

Both Emerson and Thoreau focused on not being a follower and doing wheat you believe is right. Self-Reliance, Civil Disobedience, Walden, and The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail all show this idea, which all transcendentalists had at that time. Self-Reliance by Waldo Emerson shows many ideas of the transcendentalist however two ideas seem emphasized. Right aw

No one could ever sway him from his essential life fluid. It wouldn’t matter whether you cried, pleaded, or begged on your two knees, he would not stop. He only started to drink this much when he was 35 and I was about 9 at the time, no one could explain this drastic change in him. Before, he used to drink often but now, it’s just crazy how much

Wher are you going where have you been A famous short story is “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” by Joyce Carol Oates. This stunning story describes how the seemingly perfect girl, Connie, is terrorized by the most abnormal man, Arnold Friend. Some would argue that he is the devil. Any argument that Arnold Friend is Satan can be used to say he is nothing more than a psychotic serial killer. While this prospect is horrific, it is considerably less disturbing than the devil knocking at y
