This abstract differs from my final paper in every way, having writing the paper with a different incentive in mind.

Abstract            For my final paper, the works of Thoreau and those of Emerson will be researched and compared to one another. What will be discussed will be the different perspectives on the non-human each expresses in their works, specifically the non-living, (wind, water, fire, earth), with minimal detail on the “living” non-human. Works by such authors as Muir, Cooper, and some Spanish poets such as Cardinal, will also be incorporated into the work as either in agreement or disagreement with the two main authors’ views. The only “human” aspect of the authors that will be analyzed will be the effect their works would/could have on conservation of the non-human.
