Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the work of Margaret Fuller as editor of the transcendental journal Dial. Three weeks after the journal’s inaugural publication on July 1, 1840, it received various criticisms, including some from literary dilettante William Pabodie. He declared that Fuller, with all her application, had no genuine love of knowledge for its own sake, but for the eclat with which it is attended. The journal also received criticisms from various other publications including the North American Review, Christian Examiner and Cincinnati Daily Chronicle.
