Minerva and the Muse

A Life of Margaret Fuller



Writer, teacher, and outspoken feminist, Fuller (1810-1850) was a dynamic presence in American intellectual life through her work as the editor of The Dial, the first woman journalist for the New York Tribune, author of the influential Woman in the 19th Century, and her relationships with Emerson, Thoreau, Sand, and others. This biography follows her on her journey through Boston's social and intellectual circles, New York's literary world, to Rome as an expatriate journalist, and to her untimely demise in a shipwreck at age 40.
