I was wondering if I could be supplied with a list of books and film, interviews in the media about Transcendentalism

i've already covered Nonconformity

I'm looking for Self reliance, Free Thought, Confidence, Importance of Nature

I've already done this project, cuz this is the second time I'm taking the class but I'm looking for new stuff

I'm looking for a John Frusciante interview too that might contain some of this also (I posted in the JF thread but no replies since 11 PM last night)

also I'm thinking of the movie "Stay" or "Science of Sleep" for Free Thought, the way their dreams interact with reality

Thanks

EDIT: I meant modern

Thoreau and Emerson are the most well known transcendentalist writers.

The only specific piece I can think of is Walden by Thoreau, it's mainly about nature. Civil Disobedience is also a really good work of his.

EDIT: whoops, I missed the 'modern' part

I've already googled

the last time I did it I just used music, which is so easy, but this time I have to use at least two formats of media, audio, video, etc

like I have Admit It! by Say Anything for Non-conformity, and I'm thinking of John Fruscaintes "Stuff" for self reliance or free thought or something

i dnno

I'm talking about movies, like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind and books and stuff

also that Walden book was sooo boring

I dunno...I did this class too but haven't read much but the emerson/thoreau. have you read their poems too, besides the essays and all?
if your school has access to a database with a bunch of resources use that...theyre good

i don't know why but this made me thing about the Jacket.

Siddhartha deals with some of the same themes but its old too. not that old though.

"The government itself, which is the only mode which the people have chosen to execute their will, is equally liable to be abused an perverted before the people can act through it."
-Thoreau

Beautiful passage from Civil Disobedience.
