Penn State

Charles Youmans - Professor of Music, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Walden

Author: Henry David Thoreau, ed. Jeffrey S. Cramer (Yale, 2004; annotated edition)

Book Description:

Long ago an irreverent academic warned me, “no one is dumber than a professor talking about anything other than his or her own field.” I now recognize this as utter nonsense (wink), but I admit that we have a tendency to excessive civilization. Walden has helped me ward off that danger.
