This chapter examines Margaret Fuller's early education at Dr. John Park's Boston Lyceum for Young Ladies in Boston, Massachusetts, during the period from 1821 to 1825. At this early stage in her life, Fuller had shown her rather grim determination to succeed and developed two intellectual traits: a critical feeling for literature combined with a heated literary voraciousness. In 1825, Fuller went back and plunged into Cambridge society.
