This chapter examines the life and career of Margaret Fuller during the period from 1839 to 1840. In starting her Conversations for women, Fuller launched her career as a transcendentalist leader. Her timing was perfect because it was during this time that the transcendentalist movement was gaining attention spurred by Ralph Waldo Emerson's remarkable address to the graduating class at Harvard Divinity School. Several other transcendentalists published critical books and journals including Orestes Brownston and George Ripley.
