If Thoreau had more information about the history of his life, and the type of family he had came from, I think that his book would of have been more successful. If Thoreau had written that information about his life, but it was Not included in his book then that was his book publishers fault because they were the ones who had published Thoreau’s book when he was dead. Anyways, if the background of Thoreau’s life as included in his book then his book would have probably would have been a lot more successful. If Thoreau did not preach like a preacher his believes of labor to a crowd of people who did not care a single bit of what he had to say or did not want to learn his believes of labor, then he would of seemed more like the citizens and would of probably been more successful.
If Thoreau did not live all by himself, then his human company could of given him some idea’s. And his company would of understand what he wanted in his book if he had died before his book was published, then he would have been a more well known writer. If he also had written better books before, then the public would of accepted his book a lot better.
So “Was Thoreau dependent on the division of labor while he was living on Walden Pond?”. Yes, he was pretty dependent on people to run the land around the house by the sounds of it. And yes, he was dependent for his relatives to publish his book when he had gave up the ghost (died). All what Thoreau did was walk in the woods, by the pond, and type and thinking on what else to type for his books, when he was at the Walden Pond, witch was a couple of miles away from the closes residence. And he was all alone, and the only company he had was some slaves or and servants and the animals that lived near by. The servants or and the slaves took care of the place, and the animals minded their own business and made the nature more enjoyable, acceptable, and refreshing.
