Margaret Fuller

An American Romantic Life

Charles Capper

With this first volume of a two-part biography of Transcendentalist critic and feminist spokeswoman Margaret Fuller, Capper has launched the premier contemporary study of early America's best-known female intellectual. Based on a thorough examination of all the firsthand sources, many of them never before used, this volume is filled with original portraits of Fuller's numerous friends and colleagues, as well as detailed accounts of the influential movements that enveloped them. Writing with a strong narrative sweep, Capper focuses on the central problem of Fuller's life--her identity as a female intellectual, a woman far ahead of her time.
