Remembering Thoreau, Lilacs, is a tribute to the environmental naturalist, Henry David Thoreau, who died in 1862. The oil slick in the Gulf is moving inland, and I am afraid we have not yet even conceived of the implications of this environmental disaster. Thoreau was one of my favorites in high school. I wonder what he would have to say today about what has happened.
