Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Margaret Fuller Ossoli, Chapter 8: conversations in Boston. (search)
sions of tile Bhagvat Geeta and the Desatir, Margaret Fuller had made advances into this realm: and for her, as for her early companion and life-long friend, Lydia Maria Child, it had great fascinations. She writes in her journal, for instance (February 21, 1841) :-- This Hindoo mythology is like an Indian jungle. The growths. Oh, Nature,--History of man, last birth of Nature,--how I see the fibres of God woven all through every part as far as the eye can stretch! Ms. While Mrs. Child was making preparations to develop this new thought in her Progress of religious ideas, Margaret Fuller made it a frequent theme of her conversations; beginningtains forty-three names. Among these are to be found the two women who taught Miss Martineau her first lessons in abolitionism on her arrival in America: Mrs. Lydia Maria Child and Mrs. Ellis Gray Loring. The list comprises the wives of Emerson and Parker and the high-minded Maria White who afterwards, as the wife of Lowell, did

Parker said in his vigorous vernacular, somewhat later, the cultivated American literature was exotic, and the native literature was rowdy, consisting mainly of campaign squibs, coarse satire, and frontier jokes. Mass. Quarterly Review, II. 206. Children were reared, from the time they learned their letters, on Miss Edgeworth and Mrs. Trimmer, whose books, otherwise excellent, were unconsciously saturated with social conventionalisms and distinctions quite foreign to our society. Mrs. Lydia Maria Child, the leader in the now vast field of American literature for children,--and afterwards one of the leaders in that other experiment of the American novel,--was then a young woman, and the fellow-student of Margaret Fuller. Charles Brockden Brown, Irving, Cooper — these were our few literary heroes. Fortunately for Margaret Fuller, she had been led by the political tastes of her father to turn from the weaker side of American intellect, which then was literature, to the strong side,

ccess. If one can be heard, that is enough; I shall send you two copies, one for yourself and one to give away, if you like. If you noticed it in a New Orleans paper, you might create a demand for it there; the next edition will be out in May. Fuller Mss. II. 769. 2 Fuller Mss. II. 793. On December 10, 1845, we find her recording in her journal the pleasure — rarer in those days than now — of receiving an English reprint, published in Clarke's Cabinet Library.2 She was then visiting Mrs. Child; and she records, also, her hope of a second American edition, but I am not aware that it ever arrived until the book was reprinted, after her death, by her brother Arthur. She also published, during her connection with the Tribune, two thin volumes of her miscellaneous writings, called Papers on literature and Art. This work appeared in 1846, just before her departure for Europe, and was, in the judgment of her brother Arthur, the most popular of all her books. He has reprinted it, w

an any American newspaper occupied, but that she might discuss in a similar spirit all philanthropic questions. To investigate these subjects on the practical side she had two coadjutors besides Horace Greeley ;--her early fellow-student, Lydia Maria Child, then a resident of New York, and also a later and yet closer friend, William Henry Channing. This remarkable man, whose gifts and services have in some degree passed from the knowledge of the younger generation of Americans, through his lshe evidently worked very hard in her own way, which was not always Mr. Greeley's method. Her researches into poverty and crime took many of her leisure hours; and she sometimes, in the prosecution of these researches, stayed a day or two with Mrs. Child, who, like herself, was equally ready to be absorbed in the music of the spheres and in the sorrows of the streets. Her practical aims were at this time well described in a letter written to her old friend Miss Mary Rotch of New Bedford, Massa
