My initial impression of the work is that it makes no sense. I am not good at trying to figure out the meaning of something when it comes to these. Our section wasn’t to bad, but it was still not fun to do. His transcendentalist philosophy affects his writing. You can tell by his views in the work, though a lot of things have different meanings than what you first originally think of. I think the most important line in our sections is, “I have no mockings or arguments, I witness and wait.”. This line especially helps with conveying the theme. He can’t control everything, all the good and bad stuff in the world. He knows this, so instead of getting all worried he just sits back and waits. I’m having a lot of difficulties with this. Trying to decipher the meaning is hard. I thought we did a good job at figuring out what he meant. When we went up a lot of stuff was wrong but I guess it just be like that.
