Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the life and career of Margaret Fuller during the period from 1833 to 1835. When Fuller returned home her family relocated to Groton, which she resented because of the almost isolated location of the house and because she had to work in the farm. However, she later accepted her situation and made the farmhouse her place of study and reflection. Her favorite author was Romantic Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who had a significant influence on her later career.
