Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the developments in Margaret Fuller’s career as literary critic for the New York Tribune. In June 1845 Fuller started to pick up the pace of her writing and decided to throw away her personal Romantic gendered formula. She later started receiving appraisals for her work and became involved in the so-called Wars of the Literati with other authors of literary magazines in the city. Her allies in this war were the Young America literary circle, whose leaders were the editors Evert Duycknick and William A. Jones.
