A century and a half after her death, Margaret Fuller is recognized as «America's female intellectual prophet» (Charles Capper), a thinker of stunning acumen and foresight-feminist theoretician of gender and culture, literary and social critic, foreign correspondent, teacher, writer, revolutionist. The essays in this volume discuss her «seven practices» of cultural critique, her feminism as a road not taken, the twentieth-century life of her ideas, and her relationships with Lydia Maria Child, Julia Ward Howe, and Nathaniel Hawthorne; they contain analyses of language, perception, and voice, Fuller's travel writing at home and abroad, and her brother Arthur's editing practices. The broad range of biographical and critical scholarship assembled in this book contributes to the growing comprehension of Fuller's pioneering life and work.

«This is a collection of consistently illuminating essays. Margaret Fuller emerges in these pages as a powerful foremother of modern feminism, as an early and astute critic of colonialist projects, and as a major voice in United States intellectual history. Fuller's range, like these essays, is breathtaking.» (Annette Kolodny, University of Arizona)
«'Margaret Fuller's Cultural Critique' is a remarkably 'diverse' book, which is what we need to understand someone like Fuller; the essays gathered here present Fuller in her relationships, her legacies, her travels, and her modes of speaking and writing. Fuller's extraordinary legacies deserve such a book and are illuminated by it.» (Lawrence Rosenwald, Wellesley College)
