9780300105605: These Sad But Glorious Days: Dispatches From Europe, 1846-1850

Margaret Fuller journalist, critic, radical feminist, and political activist traveled in Europe between 1846 and 1850 as a foreign correspondent for the New York Tribune. Her letters from England, France, and Italy, which began as engaging travel sketches, soon became moving accounts of the most widespread revolutionary upheaval within modern history. These dispatches are now reproduced in their entirety for the first time

 

Fuller met important political figures wherever she traveled, including those who became leaders in the revolutions, and she actively allied herself with the republican cause. Her letters describe how from her apartment in Rome she saw the November 1848 attack on the Quirinal Palace, which precipitated the Pope’s flight from the city and the establishment of the Roman Republic headed by her friend Giuseppe Mazzini; how she and the Romans (who included her lover Giovanni Ossoli, a captain in the Civic Guard) suffered through the June 1849 siege and bombardment of Rome by the French army sent to restore the Pope; and how as director of a hospital on Tiber Island, she nursed the wounded who fell in the defense of the city.

 

The dispatches, edited and annotated by Larry J. Reynolds and Susan Belasco Smith, are introduced by an essay explaining the historical and professional context in which the letters were written.

Book Description Yale University Press, United States, 1992. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 223 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Margaret Fuller-journalist, critic, radical feminist, and political activist-was a foreign correspondent for the New-York Tribune from 1846-50. This engrossing book provides the first complete edition of Fuller s dispatches from England, France, and Italy, which began as engaging travel sketches but soon turned into moving and dramatic eyewitness accounts of the most widespread revolutionary upheaval within modern history. Fuller s letters are extraordinarily good. They will be of interest to scholars of American literature and history, women s studies, and European literature and history. -Joel Myerson, University of South Carolina This collection of thirty-seven dispatches written for Horace Greeley s New-York Tribune presents an opportunity to view [Fuller] as a developing personality, burning off heaps of silliness and taking on something like character-even splendor-as she finds herself caught up in the brief, calamitous life of the Roman Republic during the European uprisings of the late 1840s. -Thomas Mallon, New Criterion Recommended for the power of Fuller s own writing, for its capacity to convey the emotional idealism of liberal America as well as liberal Italy, not to mention the amusement she as well as her readers derive from observing the sight-seer abroad. -Agatha Ramm, International History Review This welcome edition has made more accessible the works of an important figure in American literary history. -Sylvia Neely, Journal of the Early Republic.
