Transcendentalism In The 19th Century Transcendentalism revealed itself in the beginning of the 19th century with talented writers such as Ralph Waldo Emerson Henry David Thoreau and Walt Whitman These well-educated men brought such ideas as individualism imagination and nature to life through their works Many writers in the transcendentalism period included such characteristics in their pieces Some of the characteristics are spiritual well being individualism nature and imagination There are some that make these characteristics more evident than others are such as Walden by Henry David Thoreau I Sit and Look Out by Walt Whitman and I Hear America Singing also by Walt Whitman Walden by Henry David Thoreau was a well-written piece and thoroughly explains and describes nature and the spiritual utopia that comes with it The bullfrogs trump to usher in the night this explains the likeness of natures bullfrogs to musical beauty and song What sort of space is that which separates a man from his fellows and makes him solitary I have found that no exertion of the legs can bring two minds much nearer to one another In response to the men who frequently pester him about loneliness he says this and it clarifies that when one is alone in the wilderness or just solitary in general far away from the cities fellow humans and busy life he isnt farther away because of the distance there is between he and the other He insinuates that the mind could distance one from any other more or less than the exertion of ones legs and that a journey far from civilization could bring two people closer together mentally than ever before Like the marmots in the surrounding hills it closes its eyelids and becomes dormant for three months or more Here Thoreau describes the pond in the winter He describes it as once lively and busy in the fall and summer
