What reading level is Walking book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
Dullness is butanother name for tameness. It is the uncivilized free and wild thinkingin Hamlet and the Iliad, in all the scriptures and mythologies, notlearned in the schools, that delights us. As the wild duck is more swiftand beautiful than the tame, so is the wild--the mallard--thought, which'mid falling dews wings its way above the fens. A truly good book issomething as natural, and as unexpectedly and unaccountably fair andperfect, as a wild-flower discovered on the prairies of the West o...rin the jungles of the East. Genius is a light which makes the darknessvisible, like the lightning's flash, which perchance shatters the templeof knowledge itself--and not a taper lighted at the hearthstone of therace, which pales before the light of common day. English literature, from the days of the minstrels to the LakePoets--Chaucer and Spenser and Milton, and even Shakespeare, included--breathes no quite fresh and, in this sense, wild strain. Itis an essentially tame and civilized literature, reflecting Greece andRome.
