Description:

Margaaret Fuller's fame revived with the rise of AMerican feminism -- she was the first, way back in the early 19th cent -- and her life and work take on more relevance and resonance with each passing year. She was a fascinating, provocative, auto-didact activist whose ideas were way ahead of her time, and whose tragically abbreviated life nevertheless left an important and lasting legacy. Biographer Matteson, who won a Pulitzer for an earlier biography of Fuller's contemporary Louisa May Alcott and her family, has done a superb job in illuminating Fuller's life and times. An UNREAD copy, in AS NEW condition, with the feel and look of a new copy. 510 pages, including index. Bookseller Inventory # 120217

About this title:

Synopsis:

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer John Matteson, an account of the "Susan Sontag" of nineteenth-century America.

A brilliant writer and a fiery social critic, Margaret Fuller (1810–1850) was perhaps the most famous American woman of her generation. Outspoken and quick-witted, idealistic and adventurous, she became the leading female figure in the transcendentalist movement, wrote a celebrated column of literary and social commentary for Horace Greeley’s newspaper, and served as the first foreign correspondent for an American newspaper. While living in Europe she fell in love with an Italian nobleman, with whom she became pregnant out of wedlock. In 1848 she joined the fight for Italian independence and, the following year, reported on the struggle while nursing the wounded within range of enemy cannons. Amid all these strivings and achievements, she authored the first great work of American feminism: Woman in the Nineteenth Century. Despite her brilliance, however, Fuller suffered from self-doubt and was plagued by ill health. John Matteson captures Fuller’s longing to become ever better, reflected by the changing lives she led. 28 black-and-white illustrations

About the Author: John Matteson holds doctoral degrees from Harvard and Columbia Universities. He was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in Biography for Eden's Outcasts. He is a full professor of English at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, where he lives.
