Has the English language changed since 1854?

I've started reading a book named Walden, published in 1854. I am not a native English speaker, I am Persian, and I want to read this book for two reasons:to improve my English and because I think I'll enjoy it.But the words and the grammar the author uses look difficult for me and I presume it may have been written in Old English. Am I right? (**note:** *I'm reading this book with the help of a dictionary and I'm writing each word what I learn in a notebook.*)
