Margaret Fuller: Her letters, collected

Return to Home

In the October 19, 2007 Chronicle of Higher Education, Carlino Romano makes a case for the centrality of Margaret Fuller as a Transcendentalist thinker. Cornell University Press has played a crucial rule in bringing Fuller’s work to light by publishing Robert N. Hudspeth’s editions of her letters. You might wish to start with “My Heart is a Large Kingdom”: Selected Letters of Margaret Fuller. In the New York Review of Books, Caleb Crain wrote: “In My Heart is a Large Kingdom: Selected Letters of Margaret Fuller, Hudspeth has carved an elegant single volume of letters out of the complete and authoritative six that he has already edited. Hudspeth is a scholar’s scholar: meticulous, unobtrusive, indefatigable. And in My Heart is a Large Kingdom, he reveals that he also has a novelist’s eye. . . . Thanks to Hudspeth’s scrupulous edition, it is easier to meet the private Fuller than ever before.”
