CHOICE Review

All but one of the contributions to this volume assembled by Bailey (Univ. of New Hampshire) and Viens and Wright (both, Massachusetts Historical Society) originally constituted the 2010 program sponsored by the Massachusetts Historical Society to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Margaret Fuller's birth. The collection brings together many of the most experienced and accomplished scholars of American transcendentalism and 19th-century reform movements. Among the topics covered are Fuller's place in transatlantic developments in feminism, her handling of mystical and ecstatic experience, her belated engagement with the antislavery movement, and her participation in urban culture, both in the US and abroad. Her exposure to various brands of socialism is also examined. Fuller is presented in multiple guises--critic, journalist, reformer, iconoclast, traveler, avid reader, and cultural observer. Her intense preoccupation with music and the arts receives its just due. The overall scholarship is painstaking and up-to-date, and several contributors even choose to chart future directions for Fuller studies. Filled with acute insights and marked by a complexity of critical argument, this collection illuminates Fuller's participation in several cultural movements in her own time and offers striking commentary on her role as a significant precursor for later developments in feminism and social reform. Summing up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. K. P. Ljungquist Worcester Polytechnic Institute
