Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the experiences of Margaret Fuller in Italy during the period from 1849 to 1850. In July 1849, Fuller expressed in a letter to her brother that all her private hopes had fallen with the hopes of Italy. Being part of the revolution, Fuller was being hunted by the French and had to go into hiding. After months of enjoying the simple aspects of a limited life, Fuller and Giovanni Angelo Ossoli confronted a dangerous situation when Ossoli accidentally crossed into Neapolitan territory and was arrested. After Ossoli’s release, the couple decided to leave Italy and move to the U.S.
