About Book

The first book of its kind to pair the writings of Emerson and Fuller, this text plays a major role in illuminating the contributions of both men and women to American Transcendentalism. In addition to a generous selection of Emerson's essays, the complete text of Margaret Fuller's Woman in the Nineteenth Century, and a selection of Fuller's dispatches from Europe, the volume contains copious contextualizing footnotes and an excellent introduction. Readers also explore the struggles of both writers to change their views in response to political changes of the times.
