Yale University Press, 1992 - 338 páginas
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
