I think Henry David Thoreau only went to live in the woods (1845 I believe), because he lacked communication skills and was considered an outcast among his friends and family; he probably suffered from bouts of depression and malnutrition. Usually people who write that much are considered outcasts and people are not very friendly towards them because they are educated and talk like a book. It happens to the best of us. I'm sure he fought a lot with his parents when he was a child-or he was rather obedient and got sick of it. I sure would have. Being obedient to parents who only care when they feel like it is not really the way to go.
