This acclaimed biography of Margaret Fuller, first published nearly five decades ago, is now available in a new, expanded edition. Based on Fuller's detailed journals and other writings, it records the life and experiences of a literary critic, radical educator, and outspoken feminist who was deeply involved in the political, spiritual, and cultural ferment that characterized mid-nineteenth century America. It also provides a comprehensive update on recent scholarship and documentary materials that have come to light since the biography's original publication. Madeleine Stern examines Fuller's Massachusetts background, her friendship and literary collaboration with Ralph Waldo Emerson, her feminist writings, and her role as an educator of women. Universal in her interests, Fuller also concerned herself with the new sciences of phrenology and animal magnetisim, the advancement of the arts in Boston, the last stand of the Indians of the West, and the ill-fated Italian Republic. She became more widely known as the literary critic on Greeley's New York Tribune and later as America's first woman foreign correspondent. Stern includes a detailed chronology of Fuller's life and a review of Fuller scholarship, including biographies, editions of Fuller's works, and documentary sources. Drawn entirely from facts and impressions recorded by Margaret Fuller herself, this work provides a uniquely lifelike portrait, as well as the carefully researched resource for women's social history and the social, spiritual, and intellectual history of nineteenth-century America.
