Margaret Fuller: A Brief Biography with Documents (Paperback)
As a well-known editor and journalist, Margaret Fuller (1810-1850) questioned the conventional boundaries that circumscribed American society in the first half of the nineteenth century. This collection of her letters, essays, poems, and journalism reveals a woman who developed a feminist and humanist vision that transcended class, racial, national, and gender borders.
