Bibliography (Cyclopedia of World Authors, Fourth Revised Edition)
Allen, Margaret Vanderhaar. The Achievement of Margaret Fuller. University Park: Pennsylvania State University Press, 1979. Vanderhaar explores the range of Fuller’s intellectual and professional accomplishments. Also shows the importance of two major influences, in chapters on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Blanchard, Paula. Margaret Fuller: From Transcendentalism to Revolution. New York: Delacorte Press/S. Lawrence, 1978. This extensive biography aims to correct the misconceptions about the Fuller “myth” by providing a fair, realistic, and historically factual view of her. Blanchard covers both Fuller’s involvement with Transcendentalism and her later social activism.
Brown, Arthur W. Margaret Fuller. New York: Twayne, 1964. A useful, concise survey of Fuller’s life and work. Contains a selected annotated bibliography of secondary sources.
Capper, Charles. Margaret Fuller: An American Romantic Life. 2 vols. New York: Oxford University Press, 1992. The subtitles of these two volumes, The Private Years and The Public Years, indicate Capper’s concern with the tensions between the private (family-oriented) and the public (intellectual) Fuller. Both volumes are remarkably detailed regarding Fuller, her family, and her contemporaries.
