Margaret Fuller and Her Circles

These essays mark the maturation of scholarship on Margaret Fuller (1810–1850), one of the most important public intellectuals of the nineteenth century and a writer whose works have been much revived in recent decades. The authors—leading scholars of Fuller, Transcendentalism, and the antebellum period—consider anew Fuller the critic, the journalist, the reformer, the traveler, and the social and cultural observer, and make fresh contributions to the study of her life and work. Drawing on developments in gender theory, transatlantic studies, and archival excavations of the networks of reform, this volume defines Fuller as a significant intellectual precursor, a critic who analyzed and challenged the dominant interpretive paradigms of her own time and who remains strikingly relevant for ours.

Hardcover is un-jacketed.

Review

“Filled with acute insights and marked by a complexity of critical argument, this collection illuminates Fuller’s participation in several cultural movements in her own time and offers striking commentary on her role as a significant precursor for later developments in feminism and social reform. . . . Highly Recommended.”—Choice

“Margaret Fuller and Her Circles invigorates and stretches our thinking about this bold and brilliant woman as well as the century she transformed. . . . Each essay evinces a striking sense of Fuller’s development out of a particular historical context and into her own transformative voice.”—Legacy

Endorsement

“This volume presents a set of highly original and resonant essays, which illuminate Fuller's work and the cultural contexts in which she lived and wrote. Readers interested in gaining a better sense of Fuller's role in the development of American culture, of her participation in antebellum reform, and of her relations to other women authors and activists will find in this volume accurate information and persuasive arguments unavailable elsewhere.”--Larry J. Reynolds, Texas A&M University

“With Margaret Fuller’s position as widely recognized central figure in antebellum United States literature and culture established as a given, the authors . . . swiftly into sophisticated explorations of her work. The scholarship is rigorous, detailed, and impressive in its scope.”--Susan Belasco, University of Nebraska
