This chapter examines the life and career of Margaret Fuller during the period from 1838 to 1840. After her resignation at the Greene Street School, Fuller returned home to Massachusetts, sold the Groton farm and moved to Jamaica Plains. During this period, Fuller started meeting with local women to discuss women's rights and the role and purpose of women in life and society. In 1940, he accepted Ralph Waldo Emerson's offer to become editor of the transcendentalist journal The Dial.
