This chapter examines the life and education of Margaret Fuller in Cambridge, Massachusetts, during the period from 1825 to 1833. Fuller went to Harvard University and was culturally influenced by Boston-Cambridge's Unitarian faith. Despite her perfectionist ambitions, Fuller was not a domestic rebel and spent her adolescent years amicably socializing with her family's Cambridge friends. During his later teenage years, Fuller became interested in modern literature.
