Reading “Walden” is what inspired this project. My goal is to write more clearly than Thoreau — sadly not as poetically or eloquently — it is safe to say that his eloquence would be hard for most persons (myself included) to match. He tended to often incorporate the use of hyphens in his writing, which I now tend to use myself (and probably overuse, just as he did). Matters of eloquence aside, I admire his use of run-on, but grammatically correct sentences, even though they are distracting to the modern ear… mine anyway.
