What were Thoreau's reasons for moving to the woods?
Answers 1Add Yours
Thoreau wanted to live free from the commotion and greed of greater society. He wanted to commune with nature and live simply,
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
